ABSTRACT

"The problem was the Larkspur Fire Protection District (LFPD) did not effectively prepare to manage emergency operations during recurring planned public events which placed participants, the community, and emergency service providers at increased risk. The purpose of this evaluative applied research project was to determine how the LPFD could effectively prepare to manage emergency operations during recurring planned public events. The three research questions were: (a) What are the planned public event internal policy component similarities utilized by given groups of agencies; (b) How extensively do given groups of agencies utilize the incident command system during planned public events; and (c) How extensively do given groups of agencies utilize incident action plans for recurring planned public events."
