Enhanced Sports and Special Events Incident Management (MGT-440)
The Enhanced Sports and Special Events Incident Management Course is a scenario-based practicum of three primary areas within the field of sports and special events management: a) incident management, b) crowd and evacuation management; and c) crisis information management. The course is intended to prepare emergency responders as well as event management personnel, concessionaries, athletic department personnel, and elected and chief executives who would be involved in the preparation for and response to a large-scale incident during sporting or special events. There are three rigorous, simulation-supported, scenario-based emergency response activities designed to hone both individual and team building decision-making and incident management skill in the context of sports and special events operations.
This course addresses several national priorities and capabilities that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) encourages state and local jurisdictions to establish, as outlined in the Strategic National Risk Assessment (SNRA), Presidential Policy Directive-8 (PPD-8), National Preparedness Goal, and the core capabilities.
