This course is scenario based, focusing on event planning,
incident management, and policy level decision making. The course is intended
to prepare participants for the response to a large scale incident during
sporting or special events. Participants will engage in three all-hazard,
simulation supported (Biological, Mass Casualty, Active Shooter, Improvised
Explosive Device (IED), Hazmat, or natural disaster), emergency response
exercises to hone individual and team decision-making skills from a Policy
Group, Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and Incident Command Post (ICP)
This course was developed in a partnership effort between The University of Southern Mississippi’s National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (USM/NCS4) and the TEEX National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (NERRTC).
There are no prerequisites for this course.
