Details: Every gathering of people has potential for disaster. Whether it is a traumatic event like a mass shooting, or a more pedestrian practical problem like icy walkways; proper planning can help protect you from liability as well as ensure the success of your event. Crowd control is a security concern that directly affects your ability to provide emergency medical services. Emergency Medical Planning for Large Venues is a practical guide to being prepared. This book, written in a readable, casual style, is geared towards event planners, law enforcement, private security, property owners/managers and medical service providers alike. With easy to follow charts and the no-nonsense, experienced attitude of someone who has been involved in events that have been done properly and improperly, Di Giorgio teaches you what to do and what not to do and, most importantly, what questions you should be asking yourself. He takes some of the more (in)famous cases like the Pulse Nightclub Shooting and the Las Vegas, Madalay Bay shooting, and extracts the lessons to be learned from those disasters. He also analyses lesser known real-life examples and uses them as teachable moments. Di Giorgio’s previous book, “Legal Considerations for Tactical Medical Responders” has been lauded as a “must read” that fills in the gaps of other first responder training. This book, written in the same vein, is an absolute necessity for any individual or agency wishing to ensure the safety and comfort of attendees of large venues and crowds to avoid unnecessary liability.
