Security concerns are very important to planned events from celebrity get-togethers to private parties to open gatherings for the regular public. Having a trained security guard or team of officials can at the very least provide some peace of mind to the guests of the event, even if nothing else. However on the slight off-chance that something goes wrong, it’s good to have a security guard there who is trained in responding to these incidents.
Being a good security official at an event is much more than being just a big tough guy, although that certainly helps. Being friendly and polite to the guests is a good way to gain the trust of the people you’re there to protect. Dressing and looking the part is important too, especially for an upscale event or working the door at an indoor event. For some events a suit and tie with a coat is what is needed where at others a defined uniform that easily recognizable as security personnel is necessary.
Security Guard Event Awareness
There are certain issues to look out for at an indoor event that are different than an outdoor event. While an outdoor event is more about crowd control, the indoor event is more about protecting the crowd from itself. An inside event will usually be invite only, so once the people who are allowed to attend have entered, some will drift to the bar on the inside and tend to drink. Making sure the guests who have been drinking are protected from themselves, and prevented from trying to make unacceptable decisions and behaviors can be a major part of the job.
Some guests may not exactly be grateful when they are told they can’t do something. However the need to be firm is necessary as for security and the guest needs to know that it is for their own protection.
