FEMA - IEMC: Planned Events (E922)  

Aug 26-29, 2013

This course uses the IEMC format of lectures and exercises to help a community successfully prepare for a Planned Event. Planned Events are scheduled non-emergency activities that may place a strain on community resources and require special preparation in order to assure the public is protected while traveling to the events, attending these events, or simply residing near the event’s location. Depending on the size of the community, these events can include county fairs, festivals, holiday celebrations, conferences, or political, religious, and sporting events. Events like these often place stress on normal community/organization infrastructure that are tantamount to an emergency, and may result in significant negative consequences if another natural or technological emergency should occur while the Planned Event is in progress. Jurisdictions, both large and small, across the Nation are involved in scheduling and planning events that greatly impact a community for several hours or days. All Planned Events are enhanced by sufficient planning and organization using the principles and concepts outlined in the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

Selection Criteria:

This course is for State, local, and tribal officials, as well as others who are responsible for security and safety of Planned Events within a community (Event Planning Committee members, EOC Management and Planning staff, IMT Planning and Command Staff, Emergency Management Agency staff, Public Information Officers, Local Elected and Appointed Officials, Venue Sponsor Staff, Convention and Visitors Bureau Staff, and Transportation Planners).
