Course Description
Overview

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.

Course Goal

The goal of this course is to provide you with opportunities to implement incident management and decision-making skills needed to safely manage an expanding incident within a sports and special events context. To accomplish this, the course uses a multi-discipline, team-building approach to accomplish the learning objectives.

Target Audience

To reinforce the multi-discipline team approach, the target audience for this course must include representation from the organization executive management/owners, event management and operations staff, operators and/or managers of large arenas/venues, as well as the host community and emergency response managers and representatives from local government. Personnel who represent community public relations, risk management, business/finance, and business continuity functions are also essential to the course’s success. When the course involves universities and colleges, the audience must also include stakeholders from athletic departments and/or event management staffs and representatives from campus public safety, emergency management, campus administration, campus environmental health and safety, the physical plant, and student life/affairs. The audience also includes stakeholders from communities that host, surround, or neighbor sports/special events venues. These include fire services; emergency medical services; law enforcement at the local, state, tribal, and federal levels; non-governmental organizations; public health; public works; and other local, state, and federal agency representatives that would be involved in the planning and management of a sports/special event or large venue, as well as representatives from local and regional media services.
