FEMA IS-15.B: Special Events Contingency Planning for Public Safety Agencies Course Overview
This web-based course provides public safety agency personnel information related to pre-event planning, forming the planning team, event hazard analysis, and responding to incidents during special events in their community. Though relevant special events statutes/ordinances and codes must be considered by public safety agency personnel engaged in special event planning, an extensive job aid manual is included in the course and available for download on the course web page.
At the end of this course, the participants will be able to:
- Define special event.
- Identify a special event contingency planning team.
- Conduct a hazard analysis for a special event.
- Describe how the incident command system (ICS) can be used in response to an incident at a special event.
Emergency managers, personnel from emergency operations organizations such as law enforcement, fire, medical services, and public works, and representatives from other community organizations, both public and private, for whom special event planning is not a regular responsibility.
N/A. However, completion of IS 700, National Incident Management System (NIMS), An Introduction, and IS 100, Introduction to Incident Command System, is recommended.
