Arizona Multi-Agency Jail Evacuation Training
Hosted by Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu
What: Jail Evacuation Planning and Implementation Course (AWR-183)
The Jail Evacuation Planning and Implementation course presented by the National
Sheriffs’ Association and funded by the U. S. Department of Homeland Security is
designed to address the needs of small and large jails in rural and urban jurisdictions,
preparing them to evacuate their facility in the event of any disastrous event. The program
assists jail commanders and staff as they plan for the controlled but expedient departure of
all staff, visitors and inmates from the jail. It trains jail administrators to develop
procedures and plans, which supports their efforts to defend any legal challenges and obtain
whatever reimbursement funding that becomes available.
A light breakfast and lunch will be served.
