Global Biorisk Advisory Council STAR Accreditation

The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum is proud to announce that it has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation, the gold standard for prepared facilities. 

Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, the Memorial Coliseum has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning disinfection, and infectious disease prevention in every part of the facility.

To achieve GBAC STAR™ accreditation, the Memorial Coliseum was required to demonstrate compliance with the program’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures. 

The Mission of the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum was first defined in 1946, by a vote of the county’s taxpayers, authorizing the construction of a living memorial to the nation’s war veterans.
