The broad topic of emergency planning has fast become an issue of top priority nationally for schools and organizations in both the public and private sectors in all areas related to disaster planning and preparedness. This article focuses on the development and implementation of a district-wide Emergency Action Plan specific to emergency readiness in the school sport setting. The critical, collaborative roles of the school nurse and the certified athletic trainer can determine the ultimate outcome and degree of success when dealing with potentially life-threatening, health-related events. These health emergencies may occur during the school day or during after-school athletic and other activities.
