Event Emergency Action Plans Workshop

Tuesday, March 1, 11:30 am - 1 pm, Virtual on Zoom


A special event Emergency Action Plan (EAP) and its respective deadlines is a required and enforceable component of the Office of Special Events Permit (OSEP). An EAP clearly and comprehensively outlines an event's response plan for a variety of emergency situations. Every EAP must be tailored to site-specific conditions as well as the scope of the event, the risks to spectators and participants, community impacts, and the support (including personnel, equipment and logistics) required to respond effectively.

During this FREE workshop, the Office of Special Events (OSE) and and City safety agencies will discuss how to develop an appropriate EAP and share examples and other helpful resources.
