Course Description

This scenario-based course provides the opportunity to learn and implement policy-level decision-making and incident management alongside industry experts during multiple simulated events. These All-Hazard, simulation-supported emergency response exercises are designed to hone individual and team skills through the perspective of the Incident Command Post, Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and Policy Group. The course uses a multi-disciplinary, team-building approach designed to give participants the skills to safely manage an expanding incident, whether natural, human-caused, or technological, within the context of sports and special events.

This course represents a cooperative effort between The University of Southern Mississippi’s National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (USM/NCS4) and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service’s National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (TEEX/NERRTC), a member of the Texas A&;M University System
