NTED Course Number MGT-412
Length 14.00 hours
Delivery Mobile (Non-Resident)
Level Management and Planning
Continuing Education Credits 1.40
The Sport and Special Event Evacuation Training and Exercise course provides assistance to sport venue managers to prepare and/or enhance an evacuation plan to assist emergency responders in implementing flexible and scalable evacuation activities (i.e. evacuation, sheltering in place, or relocation). These emergency activities might occur in isolation or as a result of a larger, multi-entity response initiative. The course is highly innovative in that it builds multi-agency collaboration by delivering critical evacuation planning information. The user will also obtain a "take away" package with visualization and CD's from lessons learned, and templates for customizing their own evacuation plan.
At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:
* Understand the importance of a well-defined approach to planning and managing an evacuation using ICS within the National Incident Management System (NIMS) framework.
* Understand the essential components of developing an evacuation plan.
* Identify, describe, and better understand the concepts of planning and implementing an evacuation plan for sport venues.
* Understand the effective measures that ensure the evacuation emergency plan reflects the current operational strategies, organizational structures, and methodologies utilized by evacuation personnel.
* Effectively participate in a training exercise involving key partners and evaluate outcomes in order to address gaps and ensure an increasing level of preparedness for evacuations.
