Summer is right around the corner, and outdoor events can now safely open again with the right security measures now that a greater number of people are getting vaccinated for COVID-19. Of course, it’s important to make sure your event venue’s parking area is ready for the summer season before opening for any festivals or concerts. Too much foot traffic, vehicle traffic, and ill-prepared security can cause a lot of unnecessary problems.
That said, here are a few key ways you can get your venue’s parking lot ready for a busier summer season in 2021.
Fix up any surface damage
If you haven’t filled any cracks or pot-holes since winter, now is the time to do it. The summer heat only exacerbates parking lot damage, and heavy traffic can further deteriorate the parking lot surface. Not only can this kind of damage be expensive but it can also put you at risk for lawsuits. The last thing you want is event-goers tripping, falling, and suing you for negligence. Repair any damage now so your parking lot is ready to handle the traffic once summer finally begins.
Make the area easy to navigate
It’s important to make sure that your parking area is easy to navigate for event-goers before you open your venue. Parking lines should be easy to see, and handicap parking should be available. Make sure there are plenty of exits and entrances to avoid accidents or safety issues.
Get your parking lot security ready
Parking lot surveillance is crucial for large-scale events, even those that are socially distanced. According to the FBI, the number one most common form of property crime in 2019, pre-COVID, was larceny and theft. Parking lot security systems help to keep your event-goers’ property and your property safe and secure by stopping thieves and vandals in their tracks.
