Sports and Special Events Incident Management

Incident Management Course
DHS/FEMA has directed the implementation of the Federal SID for allHSNTP granted funded participants beginning October 01, 2012. In order to register for these courses, it will be required to have a Federal SID.

This course develops athletic department staffs, facility management personnel, campus public safety personnel, emergency response supervisors, and others involved in sports/special event management to better manage incidents that could occur during an event. The course provides participants the skills necessary to effectively manage an incident by applying and implementing a multi-disciplinary management team approach as described in the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

The course has specific emphasis on the unique aspects of response to an incident occurring during a sports/special event, including considerations for business continuity and after action activities. The course concludes with a practical application, role-play exercise that can be customized to the facility in which the course is delivered. It provides specific emphasis on incident action planning and resource management processes.

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.
