About the event

IMS Overview

The Incident Management Summit will be one of the first conferences with the goal to standardize incident management and campus safety within school campuses & medium to large organizations nationwide into a 2-day, interactive training that sets the benchmark in ensuring a common level of preparation in 6 key incidents common in any medium to large school, college, university, church, hospital organizations: Onsite Medical Aids & Triage, Universal Precautions & HAZMAT, Fire & Earthquake, Active Shooter or ADW, De-Escalation, and Prevention & Intervention Strategies.


IMS is produced by experienced EMS, law enforcement, emergency management, teachers, and Behavioral Health professionals. It is a gathering of the nation's leaders of frontline public safety, Fire & EMS, and behavioral health professionals, with teachers and administrators for real-world, practical sessions, scenarios and training in campus & organizational safety.

  • Scheduled for Oct 2023, the conference will be located in southern California, in the Palm Springs area.


  1. Attendees participate in 2-day training sessions.

Round-Table Discussion Topics

  • Open forums to discuss policy on forefront topics               
    • How prepared should schools, large organizations and campuses be?
    • What should be the minimum level of medical certification on campuses, non-medical organizations?
    • If you’re trained and certified, it’s okay to help, right?
    • Crisis leadership – preparation for the inevitable.
    • What role does behavioral health play in preparation, prevention & intervention?
    • What are the pros & cons of arming teachers/staff who already possess, or could readily obtain CCW training & clearance, and how would it look?
    • How does the UK manage public safety on similar campuses?


Hoping unexpected incidents of all types can’t be wished away, and will occur on some level in every organization. After a high profile public event, organizations and individuals are either hailed for their foresight and actions, or ridiculed forever for their inaction and failure to plan.

Your organization should never face the burden of wondering whether or not the  safety of your students, faculty, staff or visitors are safe. While no one can predict every possible emergency, focused preparation and training from frontline professionals will reduce the severity and save lives.

Session Tracks are the specific focus areas of campus safety. Attendees are encouraged to attend all sessions, as they comprise the entire scope of campus safety.

Each strand is equivalent to 1 ½ hrs of CE, for a total of 6 hrs CE. CE will be EMS or PD (professional development). Attendees will be cohorted, so that they attend all session tracks.

  • EMS CEs – Administered through ICEMA (Inland Counties Emergency Medical Authority). CEs are reciprocitious to other state EMS and nursing agencies. Medically licensed individuals are required to obtain a minimum of 24 CEs per recertification cycle.
  • Educators & Administrators PD – In conjunction with a university, attendees can be provided PD credits for advancement on their site's salary schedule.
