EM 851 Emergency Preparedness For Mass, Crowd-Intensive Events


Multiple deaths and injuries at large public events have occurred consistently, over a wide spectrum of countries and types of events. Certain, highly competitive sports events, particularly soccer, and rock concerts and festivals consistently tend to produce spectator generated incidents, while air shows and auto races tend to produce more participant generated occurrences.

This project was undertaken by Emergency Preparedness Canada in recognition of the numbers of deaths and injuries occurring world-wide as a result of mass public gatherings, many of which traditionally lack sufficient, or effective spectator control.
