I think a stadium would have a significantly larger team, but I thought this was a small scale view at what the crowd management team would be doing at an arena. I noticed that they had a Police representative as well as a representative for first aid. I'm not sure but I believe that the team in the US would just have direct lines to the police department and the nearest hospitals.

Damien's curator insight, March 22, 2014 6:58 PM

When we think of creating a sports facility and being either a manager or owner we have to remember it can also be a dangerous place. Meaning incidents happen and lawsuits get filed, so as an owner or manager we have to always remember to have insurance as well as proper risk management plans to protect against t lawsuits and avoid incidents.

Jack Botham's curator insight, August 27, 2015 10:04 AM

This article demonstrates the importance of having a risk management plan in place. Constant audits and inspections are mandatory to avoid serious injury or a potential fatality. It is important for builders to perform inspections not only keep people safe, but also to maintain their own legal obligations. Building inspections further ensure that structures and equipment on site, such as scaffolds, are in good working order to prevent a court case similar to the one in this article. A case like this could result in a builder being forced out of business due to financial penalty. A fatality on a site could result in the builder being sent to prison due to legislation breach.

This article in my opinion picks up on the facts of why not just recreation centers should have a risk management plan, but it coincides with any type of facility that will keep from having lawsuits or any issues.

Stadium Security Professionals Urged to Remain Diligent

Stadium Security Professionals Urged to Remain Diligent | Sports Facility Management Magazine | Scoop.it
It hasn't happened. By due diligence or pure luck, no major outdoor spectator venue in the United States has experienced a significant security breach — much less an act of premeditated, catastrophic terrorism — in the decade since the Sept.

Mike Horne's curator insight, September 22, 2013 10:13 PM

This one hits home for me.  I've volunteered at numerous venues around the country to assist with crowd control and security from the NBA Allstar game to a George Strait concert and I have seen complacency that has the potential to get a lot of people hurt or killed.  Everyone needs to remember there are peope out there that hate us and want to kill us.  If you manage a facility that attracts large crowds of people, remember those people rely on you to keep them safe and take an active part in their security.
