The Crowd and Event Safety Professional Working Group was established to look at the emergency preparedness and crowd safety issues surrounding all types of events and mass gatherings (stadia, public highways, private venues etc) in order to identify good practice and offer advice/guidance both to fellow members of the EPS and to other personnel involved in event planning. In addition the group aims to become a sounding platform for organisations who are seeking a professional perspective on national issues. All members of the group have experience of planning events and can provide information and guidance regarding particular areas of expertise or interest. The group works hard to reflect the crowd and event safety interests of the EPS on the national agenda and brings together crowd and event safety professionals to share good practice. The group is always looking to expand and bring new people on board, if you are interested in joining, please contact Geoffrey Mackett, firstname.lastname@example.org
