Emergency situations may arise at any time during athletic competition, either during practices or competitions. Expedient action must be taken in order to provide the best possible care to the student-athlete in emergency and/or life-threatening conditions. The development and implementation of any emergency plan will help ensure that the best care will be provided. 

As emergencies may occur at any time and during any activity, we must be prepared. We have a duty to develop an emergency plan that may be implemented immediately and to provide appropriate standards of emergency care to all players, staff, and visitors. This preparation involves the formulation of an emergency plan, proper coverage of events, maintenance of appropriate emergency personnel, and continuing education in the area of emergency medicine and planning. Accidents and injuries are inherent with sports participation, and proper preparation should enable each emergency situation to be managed appropriately. 


Communication is key to a quick response to any emergency situation. Communication prior to the season or an event is a good way to establish boundaries and to build rapport between all groups involved. Access to a working telephone or other telecommunication device, whether fixed or mobile, should be ensured.

In the medical emergency evaluation, the primary survey is conducted to identify emergencies requiring critical intervention and is used to determine transport decisions. In an emergency situation, the athlete should be transported by ambulance, where the necessary staff and equipment is available to deliver appropriate care. Emergency care providers should refrain from transporting unstable athletes in inappropriate vehicles. Arrangements must be made to ensure that the areas of activity remain supervised should the emergency care provider leave the site in order to transport an athlete. All emergencies will be transported to:
