  • Be aware of evacuation procedures for the event space you are using. If a fire alarm goes off, you should be able to direct your guests to the nearest exit.
  • For large events, consider the possibility of overcrowding and prepare accordingly.
  • Important- Be sure to put all furniture back in place and out of the traffic flow post-event. Failure to do so can result in injury and block emergency exit routes (especially for the visually impaired).
  • If you would like a weather forecast for your event, please email emergency management at least 24 hours prior to the event start.
