Nowadays, mass events have become an integral part of present-day life. If we talk about successful people and celebrities, they should take part in charity evenings, fashion shows, receptions, conferences, and other crowded events. But publicity is not only fame and recognition. This is a risk for the VIP personas and their near and dear ones.
To proceed according to the planned scenario of the mass accommodations, professional event security guards are provided. Protection of events (both mass events and others requiring guardianship) is a complex action that takes into account the specifics of activity and threats that may occur.
Mass gathering events
There is no clear boundary that separates the ordinary walk of people from public events. But the more attendants are expected, the more security clampdown takes place. Particular attention should also be paid to high-risk mass events. They are such meetings during which (according to the information about the anticipated threats or to the previous experiences regarding the behavior of participants) there is an expectation of acts of violence or aggression.
The public event includes crowded gatherings in:
- retail stores
- cruise ships
- educational institutions
- small business premises
- competitions for children and adults
- construction sites
- public processions
- closed meetings organized for employees
- nursing homes and other places.
Most reputable and high-status visitors want to experience a relaxed atmosphere in a suitable location, demanding qualitative entertainment. However, the main requirement for decision-makers is the safety of everyone. According to it, FSOguard is responsible for the customers’ safety at the place and time of its duration.
This concept primarily includes the safety of clients, protection of his property, medical protection, ensuring the appropriate technical condition of the facilities where the event takes place (especially in terms of fire and sanitation).

Preparations for the mass event
Our employees have an integrated approach to solving the problem. You can entrust us with the entire cycle of operations – from meeting guests and ensuring their safety to escorting them to the station or airport. A couple of days before the start of a concert or other occasion, FSO guard agents, together with the organizers, will work out an individual project for protecting the client. It will be taken into account the specifics of the holiday and the location of departmental sites.

Also, we provide investigation services in the event, under the leadership of a competent manager. The quantity of these services depends on the number of people participating in the event. There must also be medical assistance and hygienic and sanitary facilities. It is necessary to designate evacuation routes as well as provide conditions for organizing communication between the entities that secure the social occasion.

Here is a list of our responsibilities:

Types of events
To assess what resources will be needed to ensure security, you should know the features of public events. This determines the methods of equipment placement, the number of personnel, the need for special protective equipment, as well as the customer’s costs.
This type also includes fairs, processions, demonstrations, folk celebrations, and entertainment events. Terrorist attacks, scuffles, theft, and riots often occur here. executive protection serving monitors territories and looks for weak points. The event security guards draw up a detailed plan, which becomes the rule for the celebration.
For the implementation of protection, there is a certain type of legislation. Several control posts are not enough to ensure order. The presence of an emergency response service and an ambulance team is required. The carrying of items for the identification of weapons, drugs, alcohol is controlled.
Security of business meetings should take into account the fact that these events are often organized outside the office of the company’s office premises. It is not always possible to hold a respectable business reception in an office building. Office space for holding an important meeting may not be suitable for its size, official status, difficulties in organizing a banquet.
Therefore, many business people prefer to meet with their partners in a restaurant for a business lunch or organize a reception as a buffet or smorgasbord. In this case, the guards must pre-examine the selected meeting place and identify vulnerabilities, possible threats to security when holding a meeting in this place and neutralize them.
Presentations and receptions
This type includes exhibitions, conventions, tastings, and trade shows. It is important to calculate the forces, means, and the amount of equipment required. The situation is being monitored for illegal filming, audio recording, and copying of materials.
And also political meetings and receptions at the state and federal level where the mobile patrol is involved. You can entrust the protection of such events to experienced and representative agents of the FSOguard, who are prepared to discreetly identify and quickly prevent risks for senior officials. The route (as well as adjacent territories) is carefully examined the day before and is kept under control until the end of the occasion – by security patrol services.

During such meetings, manifestations of religious intolerance and fanaticism are possible. Our agents respect the feelings of believers and can adapt to the mood of the participants. While you pray, we discreetly guard your peace.
Order security for the event
When developing a detailed protection plan, FSOguard tries to establish close cooperation with the organizers at the earliest possible stage.
