The Evolution of SAFETY Act: New Developments in Protective Design for Sports Venues and Other Facilities

Date: Mon, Jul 15, 2019 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT
Register: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4623557845502475787

The SAFETY Act, which stands for Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act of 2002, was created by the U.S. Congress in the wake of the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001. Their main objective was to create a risk management tool that promotes the fight against terrorism by incentivizing the private sector to take effective measures to prevent, deter, and/or mitigate acts of terrorism here on the homeland. Recipients of the SAFETY Act receive powerful legal protections that limit or shield companies from third-party liability arising out of an act of terrorism. Initial recipients of the SAFETY Act typically received the legal protection through operational security means including security guard forces, security equipment (e.g. CCTV cameras and magnetometers), and K9 units. As the threat environment has evolved and terrorist attacks have occurred at venues, additional protective design measures are being selected by venue operators including vehicle ramming and blast resistant design. Join Walter P Moore’s Matt Nebel and Catalyst Partners’ Akmal Ali for a panel discussion about this important topic.

    Here is the harsh truth: you can’t stop weather from disrupting events and potentially endangering visitors at your venue. But you can plan for it and drastically reduce its impact on operations. Taking the weather into account when planning for your events is not a new concept, but getting it right can be tricky. The secret is understanding what you need to focus on, how to go about it and what technologies you need. Having an expert handy wouldn’t hurt. And what is your reward for getting it right? The dream result – A drop in event disruptions, as well as increased safety for your visitors and staff. We are here to tell you how to make that a reality.

    Join Earth Networks Meteorologist, Steve Prinzivalli to learn about weather safety policies and the right technologies.

    Key takeaways:

    • Understand severe weather and its threats
    • Learn how to develop an effective weather management plan
    • Get a crash course on weather technologies
