From the Toadlick Music Festival in the Spring to the National Peanut Festival in the Fall, the Circle City hosts a lot of big events.
Severe weather, over-crowding and equipment failure can spell disaster for large crowds.
Tuesday, first responders and event organizers learned how to put safety first at those events.
It's the Rural Domestic Preparedness Consortium.
Participants learned about evacuation routes and emergency response.
"I had an event that actually had more people than the room had capacity, I was not quite sure how to handle that but this has already given me information about how to handle it and how to prevent extra people coming," said Rachel Cole, program participant.
Instructors say information gathering and using social media are key tools in making sure an event goes off without a hitch.
