EMERGENCY PROTOCOL

This plan outlines the procedures and pertinent information for all medical emergencies during NYIT Athletic events. This document lists responder chain of command, important telephone numbers, and medical equipment location and appropriate locations for ambulance access. In all cases of life threatening injuries, all personnel will yield to the highest medical authority to perform the primary assessment in the order described below: Head Team Physician 6 Consulting Physician 6 Certified Athletic Trainer 6 Emergency Medical Technician/Paramedic 6 Athletics Staff Member Emergency equipment will be brought to the competition site by the NYIT Office of Sports Medicine. An AED will be present at all competition sites during all contests. Sports Medicine Staff, Coaches and Athletic Administrators should always have a cell phone at hand in case of emergencies. In case of an emergency, the Athletic Trainer on site may instruct a lay person to call 911. When speaking to the 911 dispatcher: • Identify yourself and role in the emergency • Specify your location and telephone number •.... Condition of victim(s), i.e. injury or illness (if the person making the call is not the Athletic Trainer, the Athletic Trainer will assist in relaying this information to dispatch) • Care being provided • Give specific instructions to the scene of the emergency • Instruct ambulance on how to enter campus • DO NOT hang up until told to do so • Send someone to a specific location to direct EMS if Public Safety and Security is not already doing so. Game operations staff is to make sure that EMS has the most direct access to the site of the injury. If the student-athlete is to be transported to the emergency room, send the designated athletics staff member to travel with the student-athlete. If possible bring demographic and insurance information. After activating EMS, call: 1. Head Athletic Trainer (if not present during emergency). 2. Head Athletic Trainer will call the Associate Director of Intercollegiate of Athletics. 3. Associate Director of Intercollegiate Athletics will call the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics. 4.

NYIT Athletics Communications Policies

NYIT’s general policy addressing relations with the mass media (newspapers, magazines, television, radio) is one in which personnel deal openly, honestly, quickly and accurately with media personnel to provide the media with all information about the University. The Athletic Department adheres to a strong policy that protects the individual’s rights of privacy. All press releases from the NYIT Department of Athletics are issued from the Office of Athletics Communications which sends the release to appropriate media. All requests for interviews should be directed through the Office of Athletics Communications with at least 24 hours’ notice. Interviews will be scheduled at a mutual time for both the student-athlete or coach and the media member. All classes and team responsibilities will take precedent over interviews. Media Relations Facilities and Services Media and photographer credentials of working press and radio for athletic events at NYIT may be obtained by emailing or calling Emily Dorko, assistant athletic director for communications & marketing/sports information, at edorko@nyit.edu or 516.686.7522. All requests should be submitted 48 hours prior to the event. Since space is limited, accommodations are on a priority basis. Priority is granted to members of the media who cover NYIT athletics on a regular basis and to visiting team media members who fall under the same conditions. Photo passes will be issued only to accredited photographers on assignment. The Office of Athletic Communications reserves the right to revoke credentials for home events at any time. Student athletes will not be expected to grant interviews on the day of a game, until the contest is completed, barring any special circumstances.
