Somerset Advisory Group

The council has formed a Safety Advisory Group (SAG) to bring together people who specialise in safety at events in order to provide a platform where event organisers can be given advice and guidance. It is made up of representatives from Taunton Deane and West Somerset Council's, Somerset County Council and the emergency services such as the police, fire and ambulance services.

The SAG holds monthly meetings and will generally invite the organisers of large events (above 500 attendees) or those with significant levels of risk eg. events held on or next to roads, to attend.

The SAG has produced a document of its constitution and helpful information to explain its purpose and how it operates. It includes a set of guidance and links to helpful information to point organisers of events of any size in the right direction when it comes to writing their plans.
