Just take a moment to think about all the times you’ve been to a public place or event where there were a lot of people. You’ve probably noticed that there are always a lot of security agents patrolling the place and from the looks of it, they always seem busy even though everyone there is having fun and minding their own business. This is because there’s always something or the other going on that needs to be handled so that things go smoothly. These people are always prepared to handle all the problems in the background during such events so that everyone is safe and if there’s an emergency situation, they’re already ready with an extensive plan on how to evacuate everyone on the premises.
During such a situation, security teams do their best to usher people escape routes but in order for emergency escapes to be actually effective, all escape routes should clearly be marked with emergency escape signs.
Whenever you go to such a crowded space, you see these signs even if you aren’t looking for them actively. If you notice the signs then they’ve been placed in the right places and the place you’re in has a plan to save you in case something bad happens. Ultimately, there are always some people in charge of these events and it’s their responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone who attends.
If an emergency situation does break out and it turns out that people didn’t find the exits in time because there weren’t many visible emergency escape signs, then the event organizers can face dire legal consequences. You know you’re in a place that’s safe for you if you can spot the emergency escape signs because no matter what happens, they’ll be able to take action.
