Safety
THE EMERGENCY ACTION
PLANNING CHECKLIST
By The Korey Stringer Institute
T
he number of high school athletic
participants has nearly doubled in the
previous forty years and injury rates have
also risen with this growth. Fortunately, the
impact of high school athletic-associated injuries
can be considerably reduced with adherence to
best practice guidelines. An emergency action
plan (EAP) is a specific safety guideline that
optimizes the efficiency and management of
serious injuries. Emergency Action Plans are
concrete written plans that outline what should
be done in the event of a catastrophic injury.
EAPs should include the following components:
1. Every school or organization that sponsors
athletics should develop an EAP for managing
serious and/or potentially life-threatening injuries.
The development of a written EAP is the first
step to making high school sports safer. It is
important to ensure the EAP is clearly written and
comprehensive enough to outline the exact steps
to take place following a catastrophic injury.
2. The EAP should be developed and
coordinated with local EMS, school public safety
officials on-site medical personnel or school
medical staff, and school administrators. In the

event of a catastrophic injury, all parties who may
respond to the injury site should be included in
the development of the plan.
3. Every school should have a written EAP
document distributed to all staff members.
Coaches and other athletics staff members
should be notified of the EAP steps and the
location of the EAP. Additional distribution to
event staff should be considered.
4. The EAP should be specific to each venue
and include maps and/or specific directions
to that venue. Each venue that holds athletics
practices, competitions, or other schoolsanctioned
events should have its own EAP. The
considerations per venue change dramatically
for items such as the location of emergency
equipment, EMS access to the injury location,
and communication services.
5. On-site emergency equipment that
may be needed in an emergency should be
listed. Equipment such as automated external
defibrillators (AEDs), cold-water immersion
tubs, splint kits, and first aid supplies, should be
outlined with their location in the EAP.
