The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness will be sponsoring a two-day training course titled: Sports Events Risk Management (AWR-167). The course will be delivered by the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC).
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
This course is designed to build capabilities for multi-agency collaboration pertaining to risk management for sport events. It introduces the seven-step sport security risk management process, including the idea of risk management and setting risk management goals for sport events, identifying assets that need protecting and determining risk, implementing planning and mitigation actions, and implementing after-action review for events as well as incidents. Through activity-based training modules, intact security teams will enhance their ability for planning, risk assessment, training, and exercising practices specific to conducting sport events. The expectation is for participants to return to their respective organization and coordinate the development of a sport event security management system.
The course is designed to help develop athletic department staff, facility management personnel, campus public safety personnel, emergency response supervisors, and others involved in special event management to better manage incidents that could occur during an event.
