In the event of a serious injury, the athletic training student must be prepared to activate Emergency Medical Services.  The procedures will vary according to the location of the injured athlete and according to the communication system being utilized.  Please refer to the emergency plan for each athletic venue. 

In the event of a serious injury the preferred method for medical assistance is to activate EMS by calling 911 either by campus phones or cell phones.  Campus police will respond to 911 calls and are trained as “first responders”.  An automated external defibulator (AED), oxygen, and basic first aid equipment are available when campus police arrives on scene.  Campus police will also assist EMS to arrive to your location in the quickest manner.  All 911 calls made on campus will notify campus police automatically.

Hartford Dispatch of the Connecticut State Police answers calls that are made to 911 on cellular phones.  The caller then must ask to be transferred to New Britain Dispatch for a medical emergency and request EMS.
