RESOLUTION NO. 030604

 

Establishing a policy regarding emergency plans for large outdoor events at City-owned facilities.

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes that outdoor events intended or designed for the assembly of 1000 or more people at City owned facilities should have an emergency plan for individuals attending such events to address the possibility of disaster, fire, terrorist attack, severe weather conditions such as tornadoes or thunderstorms or other emergency situations; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the Council hereby establishes the following policy regarding emergency plans at outdoor events at City-owned facilities:

 

An outdoor event or venue that is not subject to the Fire Code and is intended or designed for the assembly of 1000 or more people at a City owned facility, should have an emergency plan for individuals attending such event.

 

The emergency plan should consist of the means by which directional signage or similar marking, that indicates the nearest exit either from the event or to a protective shelter, if such exists, are posted at the event. The emergency plan should also include the means by which individuals attending the event will be warned in case of disaster, fire, terrorist attack, severe weather conditions such as tornadoes or thunderstorms or other emergency situations.

 

The directional signage or similar marking should be posted throughout the event in a manner that is conspicuous and reasonably calculated to be seen by individuals attending the event.

 

A copy of the emergency plan should be available at the event for public inspection.

 

Section 2. That the City Manager is directed to require emergency plans at outdoor events at City-owned facilities consistent with this resolution.
