A written emergency plan should be followed in the event of a
medical emergency. All coaches should be familiar with this document and their role and responsibility in an emergency. Any questions should be directed to the head athletic trainer (or
school administrator, in the absence of a licensed athletic trainer).
An emergency is the need for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to give further medical attention and/or transport an athlete to the hospital. It is important in these situations that coordination
between the athletic trainer, coaches, administrators and student responders be effective.
