Cooper's Hill - Public
In the past, there have been occasional, isolated instances of behavior
which would constitute acts of public endangerment.
This would be the result of willful or careless disregard for the safety of
other persons or property by acts of intent, omission or neglect.
Examples of possible, potential
or actual endangerment might include, for example:
Failure to observe closure of
the hill (indicated by a large red flag at the foot of the hill), whilst
casualties are being treated on, or removed from, the face of the hill
(Extreme threat of danger to life or limb!)
Failure to comply with the
requests of officials to clear the hill event areas (defined as anywhere
within the fenced off areas of the hill).
Violent, threatening or
abusive behavior to officials or members of the public.
Disregard by act or omission,
of the safety of officials or members of the public.
Damage to safety fencing.
Depositing of Litter.
The above list should not be
considered as complete or exclusive and may be modified at any time, with
immediate effect, either verbally or in writing.
The organisers of the event,
reserve the right to suspend of cancel the remaining part of the event under
circumstances where public endangerment is a current real or potential
Any person believed to be causing
public endangerment, will be requested by the organisers of the event, to cease
such behavior, or if the occurrence is, in the considered view of the organisers
to be serious or dangerous in nature, posing a substantial risk to public
safety, then the person or persons concerned will be required to leave the area
completely before the event can recommence. In such case the requirement to
ensure public safety generally, would override the right of the individual or
individuals to have access the public land for the remainder of the event.
