The Mid Devon Safety Advisory Group (SAG) has been formed by us to bring together all the relevant regulatory authorities to assist event organisers ensure that their events are conducted safely and lawfully. It is an impartial, advisory group and provides a single point of contact for coordinated and consistent advice. The SAG cannot take any decisions - its role is advisory. The ultimate responsibility for event safety lies with the event organisers and their management teams.

Main objectives

  • to advise on the events, venues and immediate environs
  • to promote good safety and welfare practice in event planning
  • to provide a forum within which the local authority and other relevant authorities develop a coordinated approach to events
