Emergency Action Plan (EAP)
Every on-field volunteer should be prepared to act in the event of an emergency. Whether you have received First-Aid training or not, here are a few simple steps you take BEFORE heading to the field that will have your team prepared to act quickly:
- Know your team – identify parents who are First Responders on your team (doctors, nurses, paramedics, police officers, fire fighters, and those trained in First Aid)
- Assign tasks – idnetify your Call Person (person who calls 9-1-1), Greeter (person who goes to the main access point to guide emergency vehicles to the scene), Responders (those performing treatment), and Director (person in charge of the scene).
- Nearest hospital/urgent care facility. For Orleans – Urgent Care on Place D’Orleans Blvd., Montfort Hospital on Montreal Rd. at Aviation Pkwy., General Hospital on Smythe Rd.
- Discuss safety plan – make this a part of your Parents’ Meeting agenda.
For any on-field incident requiring treatment further than application of a band-aid, please complete the Incident/Injury Tracking Form noting any first aid supplies that were used and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
These forms serve as documentation of events that will help track incident trends/types and ensure that first-aid kits remain properly stocked at our fields.
