In the light of recent events worldwide and with 40 000 people descending on Port Elizabeth this weekend, it would be interesting to know what security arrangements are made:
Amongst many others questions, the following:
Who is in charge of security?
What are emergency procedures at the NMB stadium?
What emergency phone numbers are used?
Where is the command centre?
How many policemen will be on duty?
How many traffic cops will be on duty?
Has all leave been cancelled for these people?
Is the PE hospital complex on high alert?
How many ambulances are available?
Is all medical personnel on duty and leave cancelled?
What is the role of the PE municipality in arrangements?
Are any municipal employees currently on strike?
Where will the mayor be contactable?
What are the communication lines?
Please add any more …
