An event like Bed Race may impose serious concerns regarding the maintenance of law and order in the town. Certain security measures are needed to be taken to avoid any possible mishap. Police or Traffic regulatory bodies are responsible to ensure security of general public and participants. All this indicates that it is necessary to take permission from the authorities.
Such events are often welcomed by the authorities because they serve in the best interest of society. There is a possibility that prevailing conditions in the Town may not support the event. Therefore, these matters can only be settled by discussing them with city authorities. Local charity has its own guidelines that dictate the types of fundraising events they will sanction. So, it is important to keep in view the guidelines of local charity or Town in order to keep an event successful (Van, 2010).
Understandably, few costs are associated with all these formalities for the event manager but will minimize the cost of overall procedure, for sure. Many law and order concerns are linked with such events therefore, a contract is signed by the organizers with authorities that they will not perform any act that will disturb the security measures taken by authorities. Contract is signed by both the organizer and Town authorities (Mayor and Police); that they will abide by the rules and regulation determined in the agreement (Heilbrun, K. (1997).
