Event Fire Safety

Fire Safety Experts

Running any type of event presents a unique set of fire safety challenges and often dynamic environments require meticulous emergency planning.

Fire safety considerations vary depending on the type, location and nature of the event. Consideration must be given first and foremost to the:

  • identification of the risks and how to mitigate them
  • maximum occupancy or capacity for a safe and effective evacuation
  • staff training
  • evacuation communication and coordination

For large scale outdoor events there may be the need to work closely with the local authority (both fire and environmental health), which our team have extensive experience in.

We work with clients from conception of an event through to completion; we understand that each event provides a unique set of parameters that often require individually tailored solutions. It is essential that a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment has been completed to safeguard the safe and smooth running of events, to ensure compliance with current fire safety legislation.

Here at Bennett Associates, we can provide the following as individual services or as a complete package:

  • comprehensive event safety plans
  • fire risk assessments
  • reliable capacity calculations and staff ratios
  • evacuation planning; identification of exit routes, assembly points and arrangements required to evacuate those especially at risk
  • crowd safety management planning
  • on-site management during the event
  • event staff fire safety training
