How to survive a mass gathering

I was interviewed for an article in Science Illustrated on 'how to survive a mass gathering'. Overall, the final article summarised our telephone conversation. In particular, it highlighted some key points to survive a mass gathering, such as the:
  • Early identification of 'safe' places within the event, such as first aid, police, and event officials,
  • Organisation of a meeting place with family and friends, if you become lost,
  • Ensure you have a list of your medications, previous medical and surgical history
  • Remain well hydrated in hot weather, and
  • Ensure you have adequate sun protection,
The article makes reference to surviving the effects of tear gas during a mass gathering - I did not make any comments related to tear gas as it has not been an element of Australian mass gatherings.
