This week you will engage in a virtual scenario where you will play the role of an Emergency Manager who is preparing for a mass gathering event. You will interface with different members of the Incident Command System, and will observe and influence how they interact with each other in managing any incidents that may happen. This is intended to give you a view of how all roles come together to function as a team, and prepare you for your final project in the course.
