Event organizers are responsible for crowd control and management at their event including ACE:
Aisles are kept clear and unobstructed at all times. No sitting or standing is permitted in aisles or egress paths to exits
Capacity of the Venue Space. Know the Maximum Legal Occupancy and ensure that it is not exceeded
Exits are clear and unobstructed at all times and assist in facilitating evacuation of the venue in the event of an emergency
controlling access to the event to prevent overcrowding
ensuring that audience members are not standing or sitting in aisles or exit ways
facilitating evacuation of the venue in the event of an emergency
Immediately prior to the start of any event in a venue holding more than 49 people, an announcement must be made to notify occupants of the location of exits to be used in the case of a fire or other emergency and advising occupants that if the fire alarm sounds they must evacuate from the building. Suggested announcement wording is: May I have your attention please? Please note that emergency exits are located (...announce/point out specific locations for this venue...). In the event of an emergency or fire alarm, please proceed quickly and calmly out the nearest emergency exit.
