MGT 412: Sport and Special Event Evacuation Training and Exercise

The Sport and Special Event Evacuation Training and Exercise Course will provide assistance to sport venue managers to prepare and/or enhance evacuation planning capabilities to assist emergency responders in implementing flexible and scalable evacuation activities.

The course is highly innovative in that it builds multi-agency collaboration by delivering critical evacuation planning information utilizing SportEvac, a computerized modeling simulation and visualization training system. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct evacuation analysis of a sport venue under a wide range of conditions. Course outcomes will include plans and policies specific to respective sport venues. This course is applicable to all sport venues, regardless of venue capacity.

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


It is recommended that the participants take the following courses:

1. IS – 100, Introduction to Incident Command System (ICS)

2. IS – 200, ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents

3. IS – 700, National Incident Management System (NIMS): An Introduction

4. IS – 800B, National Response Framework: An Introduction

Attendees are also encouraged, but not required, to have completed Sport Event Risk Management (AWR-167) or equivalent training/experience.
