PROCESS: Sports and Special Event Management Planning

October 31, 2019

In 2013 I completed the Texas A&M Engineering Extension (TEEX) MGT 404: Sports and Special Event Management course.  In Spring 2014 I was involved in a hot air balloon incident, not as a Plans Chief, as a passenger on a nearby balloon. In this episode I share the main topics presented in the MGT 404 course and provide my perspective as a former Incident Management practitioner and unwilling participant in an incident within an event.


Key Time Stamps:

  • 00:03:09 - Pubic safety hast to be involved in sport and special event planning

  • 00:10:45 - Noone is too special by patch, badge or logo to be involved

  • 00:18:05 - Are we doing personnel accountability reports (PAR) for event participants, e.g. balloon riders

  • 00:24:55 - Who's going to track the training progress from the improvement plan?


Thank you for listening and Godspeed,
