The New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (NJOHSP) will be sponsoring a two-day training course titled: "Sport and Special Event Evacuation Training and Exercise" (MGT-412). The course will be instructed 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.
The Sport and Special Event Evacuation Training and Exercise Course will prepare sport venue managers to enhance evacuation planning capabilities and assist emergency responders in implementing flexible and scalable evacuation activities. The highly-innovative course builds multi-agency collaboration by delivering critical evacuation planning information utilizing TOP Venue, 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 will include plans and policies specific to respective sport venues. This course is applicable to all sport venues, regardless of venue capacity.
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.
Confirmation messages will be sent no later than one week from the scheduled delivery date. If you have any questions regarding this workshop, please email Michael Urbanski at MUrbanski@njohsp.gov.
