LA Infragard and GRIP present the following virtual training:
A trained Crowd Manager is a position that is explicitly required in NFPA 1 and referenced in many state and local fire codes for Assembly Occupancies over 50 people. A trained Crowd Manager must know a variety of things, but their primary purpose is to assist a crowd to more effectively and safely evacuate or move away from harm’s way during an emergency. Large sports venues with the enormous crowds in a relatively confined space are always a management challenge, and having trained, prepared staff ready to assist has become a necessity. This has been taught across the county to both public and private sector participants, for state Homeland Security offices and even working with the DHS sponsored fusion centers. Among the key elements of Crowd Manager instruction are:
• Understand lessons learned from emergency case studies
• Understand the movement scenarios of crowds and the crowd manager’s role
• Understand the crowd manager role in an active shooter scenario
• Understand the crowd manager role in fire safety, gas leak, flood, power outage, crowd surge and other scenarios
• Understand the checklist of key Items to be reviewed in a crowd event
• Understand the components of the acronym ESCAPE – Exits, Storage, Capacity, Aisles, Protection, Emergency
Following the formal Crowd Manager class, we will feature a dynamic scenario driven panel discussion covering potential events that they may or likely will encounter involving crowd manager roles, requirements, tactics, techniques and procedures.
