Traffic Services for Special Events
Trained Traffic Control Experts: Part of Safety & Security for Your Planned Special Events
Planned Special Events (PSEs) can involve substantial costs and, in many cases, generate significant revenues to private industry and government entities. A predictable part of your event’s cost is connected to managing crowds entering or exiting parking areas near the event.
Cross Safe provides a cost-effective alternative to active duty police to help manage your event’s “walk zones” and parking areas. Because safety of event attendees is always at the forefront of event planning, maintaining pedestrian safe “walk zones” within a radius of your event becomes essential if there are active streets to cross.
Many events, such as concerts and professional team sports, are held only on evenings and weekends. This can lead to budget increasing overtime costs for active duty or even off-duty police officers.
Out-sourcing this portion of event safety to Cross Safe allows the Police Department to focus on their day to day operations, without having to assign a sworn officer responsibility to oversee traffic control and crowd crossing control. In addition, should police officers need to cover essential policing duties during the event, crossing areas are not left unattended.
Cross Safe helps you plan for traffic control and can cover set up and day of event activities, as well as any requirements for traffic control associated with event closing and tear-down.
Cross Safe provides traffic control services for PSEs at temporary venues: parades, fireworks displays, bicycle races, sporting games, motorcycle rallies, seasonal festivals, and civic milestone celebrations.
Traffic Control Professionalism Starts with Training, Uniforms
All Cross Safe traffic control personnel wear company issued and required uniforms while on the job. This helps identify them as professionals, reducing risks for drivers and pedestrians.
Cross Safe maintains comprehensive General Liability Insurance and Worker’s Compensation coverage protecting both our clients and our employees.
Hiring traffic and crowd control professionals only works if they are reliably in the right place at the right time.
Cross Safe’s advanced, real-time GPS-based time and attendance system notifies an account manager as our employees enter or leave the job site. This system allows a manager to immediately identify and address any unattended posts.
