The Enhanced Sports and Special Events Incident Management course is a scenario-based practicum of three primary areas within the field of sports and special events management: a) incident management, b) crowd and evacuation management; and c) crisis information management. The course is intended to prepare emergency responders as well as event management personnel, concessionaries, athletic department personnel, and elected and chief executives who would be involved in the preparation for and response to a large-scale incident during sporting or special events. There are three rigorous, simulation-supported, scenario-based emergency response activities designed to hone both individual and team building decision-making and incident management skills in the context of sports and special events operations.
* Identify and discuss the key concepts and processes needed to plan and prepare for smooth, coordinated operations at a sporting or special event, including risk awareness, effective resource management, and other considerations.
* Employ the Emergency Management Exercise System (EM*ES) in incident command post simulation-based practical exercises.
* Evaluate and manage the response to a simulated large scale, all-hazards incident that involves a sports or special event from a policy, Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and/or incident command post perspective.
* Identify and discuss key concepts and processes needed to plan and implement a response to an incident during a sporting or special event, including risk awareness, incident management, resource management, and crowd management and evacuation.
* Evaluate how critical areas of managing an all-hazard, high consequence incident response in a spots or special event context are applied in practice.
