Public Community Event - Lighting Requirements
Areas available to the public at night should be illuminated for the duration of the event and to facilitate people leaving the event. Lighting should be energised approximately one (1) hour prior to sunset to allow time for any unserviceable lights to be repaired before sunset.
In the event of an emergency, a system must be in place that provides for instantaneous floodlighting particularly for crowded areas and exit paths. The supply and control of these lights is to be independent of other lighting and controlled from a location attended at all times by a designated person. For Outdoor Events there must be at least two alternative power supplies. Two generators or a supply authority main and a generator are acceptable under the provision that lighting power is distributed between both.
