Sport Law & Strategy Group Presents Two-Part Blog on Emergency Preparedness Planning
Sport Law & Strategy Group – September 14, 2017 – Toronto – The Sport Law & Strategy Group (SL&SG) has released a two-part blog series, titled Emergency Preparedness Planning & Lessons from Recent Natural Disasters, to assist sport leaders in their event risk management work. Part one of the blog defines what emergency preparedness planning is, its importance in mitigating risk for sporting events, and its impact to sport organizations. Part two of the blog explores several recent natural disasters in Canada and the lessons that they provide to sport event managers. The blog series shares how investing in event safety through a plan is the key to preparing for and mitigating event emergencies.
Jason Robinson, an Associate with the Sport Law & Strategy Group and the author of the blog series, believes that sport organizations have a long way to go in the area of event risk management. “Sport leaders are now realizing the value of effective risk management planning, although much of this effort is primarily at a macro organizational level,” said Robinson. “The next step is for sport managers to address the high-level risks at their events that can pose serious consequences. By taking a proactive approach to these potential emergencies, sport organizations can dramatically increase participant safety, maintain event continuity, and elevate their standard of care.”
