Emergency Action Plans
At Paxon SAS, an Emergency Transport will most likely be sent to one of the two nearest hospitals:
Wolfson Children's Hospital: 800 Prudential Dr, Jacksonville, FL 32207 (904) 202-8000
UF Health Jacksonville: 655 8th St W, Jacksonville, FL 32209 (904) 224-0411
Attached below are the EAPs for every athletic venue at Paxon School for Advanced Studies. The coaches review this before every season and are encouraged to practice this scenario with their athletes at the start of the season. The Athletic Trainer is responsible for creating, sharing and updating the EAP every year.
All DCPS coaches are required to be vertified in CPR, the use of an AED, and first aid or coaches safety training as taught by the Jacksonville Sports Medicine Program. Members of the coaching staff should NEVER attempt to render medical aid beyond their traning or ability.
Do not allow an injured individual to be moved by teammates, coaches, officials, or spectators if a possible spinal injury is suspected. Immediately contact the Athletic Trainer and/or activate EMS.
At least one member of each team's coaching staff should have keys to access all gates/doors to their respective venues. Coaches should make sure these areas are free of obstructions during practices and games, in order to allow for passage of emergency vehicles or personnel should the need arise.
