How to create an Emergency Action Plan EAP

An emergency action plan should be implemented at all athletic events, as well as in office buildings.  An emergency action plan is a well-developed, organized plan of what will happen in the event of certain emergencies.
 Emergency action plans can vary in size and information.  Hang on by each phone that lists the name, address, and phone numbers of the specific location.  Local numbers to the police, fire, hospitals, and poison control should be included.  Add 911 to the list.  Numbers to fellow athletic trainers, team physicians, and other medical personnel can be listed as well.  Put the numbers in order of chain of command.  In emergent situations it is best to lay everything out clearly since things can get hectic.
