Being Prepared for a Medical Emergency
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
Leisure activities, recreation, exercise, sport and sporting events are a part of life in society today. In a public school setting, it is the responsibility of the school/facility administrator to ensure safety for the participants and spectators or audience. Safe facilities, playing surfaces and equipment are a foundation for providing safety. Also, the administrator should be proactive in having a written emergency action plan for foreseeable situations, specifically, a medical emergency. Having a predetermined plan of action is imperative for the hosting school/facility. Some important aspects for an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) should include all personnel that will be part of the plan, scheduled mock practice sessions, availability of equipment, current certifications, etc. After implementing these aspects it is imperative that all individuals involved understand and know the details of the EAP in order for it to be effective and successful.
