to be 2 trained crowd managers for the fire assembly.  Meanwhile, crowd control is usually a
response to an uproar within a crowd. In other words, crowd control happens
when a crowd is engaging in unlawful behaviors that can cause harm to others in
and outside of the crowd. An example of crowd control would be if there is a
football game going on and someone in the stadium shouts “a killer is on
the loose.” As a result of the person shouting about a killer people in
the crowd start to panic and start to run out the stadium in an out of control
manner. While the crowd is running a crowd control team such as the police may

in the crowd.
