Abstract

While considerable effort, if not always success, has been made in terms of the adoption of emergency response and communication technologies on a government level, the ability of private enterprise to adopt such emerging technology has for financial reasons been limited to only certain larger industries, e.g. power industry etc. Here we address the potential use of such systems, through the adoption of emerging technology in situations with short active time-frames, high potential impacts on significant populations, and low management resource contexts. In this chapter we focus on the specific context of special events and festivals as an example of these circumstances.
