Safety is the first priority Safety is the first priority in event management. Recent major emergency incidents such as the terror attack in Manchester Arena, concert fire in Oakland, and bombing in Boston Marathon, etc, served as painful reminder of the ever-present threat in any live mass event. The need of continuous assessment of risks, as well as developing and implementing up-to-date emergency plans are essential for effective response to all kinds of emergencies including man-made and natural disasters. Event safety does not rely only on the event organisers and emergency responders but also the general public, the government and industry stakeholders.
