The Events Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) has been set up to provide advice and guidance to organisers of public events in the East Riding of Yorkshire Council area. The core members of the group are senior officers from specific emergency services working in the council area (Police and Fire and Rescue Service) and council services (highways and public protection).
ESAG's main objectives are:
- to promote high levels of safety and welfare at events by giving advice
- to promote good practice in safety and welfare planning for events
- to ensure events cause minimal adverse impact.
All comments and observation made by ESAG are always advisory. It has no statutory compulsion and organisers are under no obligation to submit information, attend ESAG meetings, or follow ESAG's advice. However, each of the constituent members has their own regulatory role and may exercise their powers independently.
