New MA Fire Regs For Dances
|July 17th, 2011|

- designate a trained crowd manager for each 250 people the hall is allowed to hold, rounded up.
- complete a checklist before each dance starts letting people in (failures on the checklist must delay the dance until they are remedied). We need to keep completed checklists in the building for a year.
- Make exit announcements at the start of the dance.
- Designate someone to make sure the hall doesn't go over capacity.
You can read an faq or the law. I believe these regulations apply to all massachusetts contra dances except ones held in halls certified for fewer than 100 people, but I'm not a lawyer.
