Emergency Action Plan Special Events Planning

Emergency Action Plan Special Events Planning

What is the Importance of an Emergency Action Plan (EAP)?

An Emergency Action Plan, or EAP, is a formal written plan, developed by the sponsor, that identifies potential emergency conditions at the event site and prescribes the procedures to be followed to minimize or prevent loss of life and property.

A special event is a planned and organized activity or contest, which will place a group of 10,000 or more known or estimated participants or attendees, or both, in a defined geographical area where access by emergency vehicles might be delayed due to crowds or traffic congestion at or near the event. 

EVERY EAP must be tailored to site-specific conditions and to the requirements of the agency/organization that owns or regulates the site of the event.
