At night, the staff of SG “Rodina” ensured the safety of the equipment that had been brought and installed on the stage for the festive concert and during the festival, the staff were involved in the following tasks:

– permit regime;

– coordination of guests at the entrance;

– securing perimeter, internal and adjacent territory, scene;

– ensuring general order in the area;

It is always an increased responsibility to ensure the safety of a mass event, and especially a holiday with a large number of children. Therefore, our employees prepared and developed a set of measures in advance for the implementation of security in the territory of Teatralnaya Square. Any conflicts or emergencies were prevented during the festival. All guests, including children and their parents were under the reliable protection of SG “Rodina” all day long.
