Sports Safety and First Aid: Preparing for Sport Emergencies

Preparing for sporting events are more than just getting into shape for the event one is planning to participate in.

Even though they address different types of emergencies, two things were common EAPs and training days for all involved. The final article addresses the legal standpoint and liability that acknowledge the responsibilities of the sponsors for the sport event.
