Running an event safely

Safety Advisory Groups (SAG)

Safety Advisory Groups are usually, but not exclusively, coordinated by a local authority and made up of representatives from the local authority, emergency services and other relevant bodies. They meet at regular intervals, or when necessary, to review event applications and most advise on public safety. They tend to be based on local authority boundaries but may be event or location specific, for example, Mildenhall stadium or Homegrown Music Festival.
