Events

Planning for a special event can be difficult. Planning for the potential risks and hazards associated with a special event is even more difficult, but essential to the event’s success. A special event is an activity within a community that brings together a large number of people (usually 500 or more). Emphasis is not placed on the total number of people attending, but rather the impact on the community’s ability to respond to a large-scale emergency or disaster or the exceptional demands that the activity places on various support services.

Possible issues that must be addressed in the very early stages of planning or when discussing promoting or sponsoring such an event. Consideration must take into account the scope of the event, the risks to spectators and participants, community impact, and the support required (personnel and logistics).

Please complete the fillable Special Events form and submit a minimum 72 hours prior to the event. If you have any questions or need further assistance contact SecurityServices@fit.edu . Security support for events are for Florida Tech employees and students only.
