Halo celebrates one-year anniversary
8th April 2020
Event safety specialists, Halo Solutions is celebrating its one-year anniversary with multiple contract wins for its award-winning event safety app, Halo. Halo will be used to keep millions of eventgoers safe in 2019 at the Cricket World Cup, Isle of Wight Festival, Creamfields, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Ed Sheeran concert in Leeds and Ipswich and several events and carnivals across the UK.
Halo will allow organisers of these large events to streamline security, health and safety procedures giving them complete control and real-time, shared situational awareness to their own virtual command station.
Since its launch in 2018, Halo has been deployed across cricket, rugby and football stadia helping to keep tens of thousands of people safe at every game as well as large well-known events from marathons to carnivals. It has also been credited with saving one man’s life at Leicester Carnival. The man needed urgent medical help and despite the radio being busy with another matter, a steward on Halo was able to get a critical message straight into the control room and medics. Because they were all using the same system and the location was pinned on a map they could all see, medics arrived in less than four minutes and intubated the man, disrupting the status quo of ‘one incident at a time’ that’s difficult to find at events.
