By their very nature, special events can present unique risks not normally experienced in the day-to-day operations of your organization. The same is true if you are personally hosting a special event.
While there may always be a chance for the unknown, mapping out potential risks posed by a special event can go a long way in preventing them from turning into serious liabilities for you or your organization.

For every “YES” you check, there should be an association precautionary measure being taken to minimize that risk. For example, if there is a “concern for spectator safety,” it is your job as the event organizer to determine what reasonable precautionary measures will be taken to increase the safety of those spectators.
