Campus Prepares for Handling Emergencies at Events

Multiple campus departments responsible for public safety and local community response agencies joined together for a 3 day training course to help improve incident management skills.  The Office of Emergency Management hosted the scenario-based workshop focused on incident management, crowd and evacuation management, and risk management.

The course is intended to prepare participants for response to a large-scale incident during sporting or special events.  Participants engaged in three, simulation-supported, emergency response exercises designed to hone individual and team decision making and management skills.

Associate Vice Chancellor for Public Safety and Chief of Police Troy Lane was impressed with the course saying “the professional instruction provided by the partnership between TEEX and NCS4 presented us with a great opportunity to bring multiple partners to the table to learn and practice together.  Training as a team and building relationships is critical to protecting the campus community.”
