In light of what the terrible actions that a man committed at the Route 91 music festival in Las Vegas this past week, I, as the owner of Stratum Productions, want to take some time to explain the steps we are taking as a company to better serve our customers.
I believe it is our obligation as a production company to fully transform the events environment. This means that we need to be prepared for any situation that may arise. Something as simple as a fire alarm going off at an event venue can create mass chaos. But a small group of people with the proper training and knowledge can have a great impact in that situation.
That is why I am requiring all of Stratums Employees go through two training courses. Which is the Event Safety Training, provided by the Event Safety Alliance, and CPR/ First Aid. Event Safety Training will ensure that our employees can assess a situation and successfully address the issues that may arise with any live production event. CPR/First Aid will give each of our customers the peace that we can provide life saving techniques until the paramedics arrive on the scene.
We will also be adding an emergency plan to each of our production packets. This allows us to be familiar with the venue policies when it comes to how they handle emergencies and how we can react to assist getting people to safety in an effective and efficient manner.
Having a successful live event is always our goal but I never want to see what happened this past weekend happen again. But I want to know that if it does we are prepared to handle it and provide a safe environment for our clients and guests from start to finish.
