A Mass Gathering can be many different things from a parade, to the Presidential Inauguration to the Super Bowl. Any large crowd requires extra consideration by local municipalities to ensure everyone stays safe and enjoys the event.
This year, the U.S will experience a unique, once-in-a-lifetime event with a Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st, 2017. Essentially, the path of the eclipse is 70 miles wide and 3,000 miles long, cutting through mostly rural areas of the country. Emergency responders have been planning for months to manage traffic, parking, crowd control and more to make sure the event goes off without a hitch.
Everbridge collaborated on a Resource Guide with experts at Boston University's Healthcare Emergency Management Program. The guide covers:
- The timing of the eclipse both before, during, and after the event
- What to expect during the eclipse as it passes by your area
- How to evaluate your community for heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic
- 10 Step Guidelines for reviewing your plans
- A Case Study in Larimer County Colorado
- Extensive resources for you to use as you develop and fine-tune your plans
