Emergency Preparedness

On Monday, we will begin talking about being prepared for an emergency that may occur during athletics.  Something to think about over the weekend:

Why is it important to have an emergency action plan for athletics?

What is SB 82?

Part of being an athletic trainer is knowing what to do in case of an emergency and establishing and emergency action plan in case of such emergency.  It is also vital for coaches and athletes to be trained on this plan as well.  Do you know what to do in case of an emergency?

Facility Design

Today we took a tour of our athletic and athletic training facilities which will lead into our lesson and project for designing an athletic training room.  There are many areas needed for many different things and the design of an athletic training room is essential in assisting the athletic training staff with mulit-tasking (providing treatments while having athletes rehab, etc).
