Emergency Action Plans & Incident Action Plans, Venue Equipment, Supplies

Having the right supplies and equipment on the venue when needed can mean the difference between life and death. Each sport, depending on rules and the types of injuries, has different requirements for supplies and equipment. Understanding what is needed on the sideline is necessary for the best care. As part of the whole care of athletes, Emergency Action Plans must be developed, written and exercised frequently to prepare the sports provider for any emergency.
