Just Plain Ruff Posted October 20, 2016 Share Posted October 20, 2016 You could hire EMT's to be your first responders. they should be under a medical director's supervision, approach the local ER or Clinic to see if there are any physician's willing to do this. If you cannot find a physician to lead the charge so to speak, I would only hire someone for first aid, and first aid only. Anything more than a cut or a bruise gets EMS called. Have the first aider initially look at the patient but EMS should be called. You should not put the level of responsibility of making a decision on allowing a child to return to a game after they have been hurt to a EMT, sorry emt's out there, but seriously, this is not your purveyance. If the local sports organization isn't willing to fork out money for a higher trained person on site than an EMT then they need to NOT have anyone and just call 911 to get EMS there. But EMS should not be the ones to make the decision to let the child return to the game, that's why you pay someone of a higher level of care like a trainer or a physician or even a nurse. Have you asked your parents if there are any physicians out there who might be willing to volunteer to be the medical person if something were to come up in a given situation? You might find that you have more doc's and nurses in the group than you realize who will volunteer one game day each to make sure that all the kids are safe. Something to think about.
