The right of California patrons to feel safe during a night out

When we go out for a fun evening of entertainment, we don't think about the possibility that something will go wrong -- that a fire might break out at a dance venue or that a stage light could fall and hit members of the crowd. Nor should they have to fear for their safety from modern incidents of violence.

The bottom line is this: Every entertainment venue needs to prepare for all possible scenarios, big and small, to keep its customers safe. Here are five things theaters, concert halls, hotels and resorts should be doing to ensure patrons are as safe as possible.

  1. Hire a company to perform a risk assessment. The company should review on-site emergency procedures, evaluate staff training for emergencies, examine the setup and monitoring of security cameras, point out potential hazards, review public access to the facility, make sure fire exits are marked, identify points of entrance to be secured and review where emergency vehicles will park.
  2. Recognize that larger events bring higher risks. It is important that venues not scrimp on security and other preparations in big events. If big-name talent, other celebrities or dignitaries will be in the building, paying for extra security is vital.
  3. Review what other similar venues have done for similar events. Metal detectors? Bag searches? Frisking? All of these are possible steps you can take.
  4. Bring in enough police or security officers to monitor the expected crowd. If a huge crowd is anticipated, an ambulance should be on hand and the fire department filled in about all plans.
  5. See to it that all event staff is properly trained. They need to be aware of crowd management, how to spot anything that looks suspicious and just when to contact emergency personnel.

California drivers who do these things place you in harm's way

How many times a week do you get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle to drive on a California roadway? If you commute to work every day or are the parent of a school-aged child, you may feel like you need a calculator to come up with a number to answer that question. The average family today spends a lot of time in a car. Whether driving to school, sporting events, social gatherings or just running errands, it's possible but challenging to get by nowadays without driving.

You adhere to traffic regulations and do your best to stay alert and ready to react as safely as possible as you travel to your daily destinations. That may not be enough to keep you safe, however, if a distracted driver is nearby. There are several types of driving distractions that place you and other motorists and pedestrians at risk for serious injury. If you or your child suffer injury in a distracted driving accident, your community's legal resources may be a main source of post-accident support.
