Be prepared for anything with this no-fuss Emergency Management Plan template!
Emergencies can occur at any moment at events. Generally, events will consist of large crowds which makes the impact of emergency situations all the more dangerous.
A good Emergency & Evacuation Management Plan (EEMP) should include a range of topics. Most importantly, these will include easy-to-understand procedures and detailed evacuation procedures. In addition, it will also provide emergency contacts and personnel details.
This template includes a large number of standard procedures, including:
- Medical Emergency
- Fire Emergency
- Hazardous Material Emergency
- Bomb Threat
- Severe Weather Emergency
- Flood and Tidal Management
All event procedures listed within this EEMP require little to no editing. In addition, we provide sample evacuation maps to help you create your own.
Why Would I Need An Emergency & Evacuation Management Plan?
As an event manager, you are responsible for the safety of your patrons. Therefore, in case of an emergency, you and your staff need to know exactly how to handle it. Consequently, how you handle an emergency will influence the outcome drastically. Hence, your procedures need to be clear and easily understood.
Evacuations are occasionally necessary to ensure the safety of your patrons. As a result, you might need to relocate large volumes of people to specific areas. Needless to say, your evacuation maps and assembly areas need to be clear to all staff.
Our EMP will ensure you have the tools to manage an emergency adequately and coordinate an evacuation successfully.
Stakeholders who will require to see an EEMP are:
- Clients or Event Owners
- Local Councils
Commonly, EMP’s will only apply if you are using outdoor public areas to host your event. Existing events venues or indoor venues generally have their own EMP’s and evacuation procedures. Therefore, for these types of venues, please consult with the venue directly.
