Course Description

US FlagThis 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.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for MGT412 Sport and Special Event Evacuation Training course #78405.
