First Aid Standards
Please remember to keep your first aid certification current and have an updated emergency plan and first aid kit. Click here for ideas on what to include in a sports specific first aid kit. Kits may be purchased through your local supplier or St. John’s Ambulance.
Coaches should know the location and have easy access to emergency first aid kit, ice, a telephone (remember a coach might not always have a cell phone) and athlete medical information. Coaches should know access points to facilities for emergency services and the location of the local hospital. For an example Fire and EAP plan click HERE.
Keep your injury log current and log any injury as soon as possible. Please feel free to post this in your gym to help your athletes and staff with keeping current!
