Description:This course teaches community leaders and public safety professionals how to plan for event security, a critical part of successful event planning. This is a planning- and management-level course designed to introduce basic principles and skills associated with planning security for a variety of events that range from small events to large-scale, regional events involving personnel from multiple agencies and jurisdictions. This course enables participants to recognize and plan ade¬quate strategies and security measures to prevent or mitigate incidents. Further, this course uses the all-hazards Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (THIRA) approach to: 1) identify threats and hazards; 2) assess risks; and 3) establish planning measures to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to, and recover from threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk. This course is designed to foster a Whole Community approach to event security planning and encourages participa-tion among law enforcement, emergency management, EMS, fire service, and public health personnel, as well as other stakeholders who have a responsibility for security during planned event (e.g., event organizers). The Whole Community approach reinforces the benefits of cross-discipline collaboration in advance planning for event security.
