Bars & Lounges Expert Witnesses & Security Part 2

Bars and lounges expert witnesses may opine on bar security, lounge security, and night club security. Consumer’s Guide to Nightclub Safety writes:

Do you know what the military does to ensure that teams achieve their aims? They establish rendezvous points. Pick a well defined area outside the nightclub to meet up with your friends. Then when there is an emergency, be sure to see them at your rendezvous point.

Do you know where the exits are? Before you enter a nightclub you should have an understanding of where the closest exit doors are. Are the exits distinctly marked and well lighted? If the exit paths are blocked, report the violation to management and leave the building if they do not listen to you. Then make sure to register a complaint with your local fire marshal.

Do you feel secure? Does the establishment look to be overcrowded? Do you see electric receptacles that seem like they have been incorrectly maintained? Are there safety systems implemented like sprinklers, security lights and smoke alarms?
