This 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.
