Community Event Support

Planning an Event? - REACT UK Community Safety is Here To Help!

If you are planning an event REACT Community Safety would be pleased to help you ensure everything goes safely and efficiently. We can assist you throughout the planning stages and the actual event itself.

Services we can provide can vary dramatically depending upon each event and where it’s being held, contact us to discuss things – you may be surprised at the experience we have. 

REACT can provide the following services:-

  • Event safety stewards trained in basic first aid
  • Lost child post manned by vetted personnel (PVG & Enhanced Disclosure)
  • Radio communications (CB Radio, PMR, UHF & VHF)
  • Car Parking / Traffic management
  • Escort vehicles equipped with orange hazard warning lights

REACT UK members act as the eyes and ears for the event organisers by monitoring the safety and comfort of all spectators and participants, ensuring that health and safety issues, such as fire exits are being kept clear, access routes for emergency vehicles is maintained.  If an emergency situation such as fire dictates that the event needs to be partially or fully evacuated REACT personnel will assist in the orderly evacuation of the event.

We have provided cover for:-

  • BBC Television during the filming of the 'Rivers' program with Griff Rhys Jones who swam in the Tay at Perth.
  • Carnoustie Coastguard Association - Event safety marshals at fireworks display.
  • Hessilhead Wildlife Hospital Gala day - Traffic management / car park control.
  • The Salvation Army - First aid cover at annual football tournament. 
  • Scottish Garelochhead Marches - First aid & Highway vehicle escort vehicles.
  • British Divers Marine Life Rescue - Scottish Area.

How much do we charge?

As a community group which is dependent upon financial donations in order to continue to operate REACT UK have adopted the following criteria:

If your event is
NOT a commercial enterprise
and access to the public is free, and participants do not have to pay a fee to take part, then REACT UK
will provide our services free of charge. We do however expect to receive a pre-agreed donation to cover transportation and team catering costs.

If your event IS a commercial activity REACT UK will require a donation based on the services required and number of personnel / equipment required (this donation amount will be agreed prior to the event). 

This is necessary as
REACT UK volunteers give their time for nothing and we feel that is only right and proper that REACT UK reimburse them for out of pocket expenses such as transportation, food & refreshments.

If you think our services might be of assistance to you please contact us via our online contact form or via email at or telephone 07849 184354.

Please note that due to the high volume of requests for service we receive, we would ask you to give us as much notice as you can so that we can let you know whether we can assist you.  We will forward to you our event booking form and risk assessment which we will use to plan our response.
