Introduction

Each athletic venue has a specific emergency plan, based on the location of telephones and accessibility by emergency vehicles. For athletic events, the Certified Athletic Trainer present will delegate responsibilities in the event of an emergency situation occurring solely within the competitive area of the venue. The Event Administrator shall assume responsibility for any emergency situation that occurs in the public area of the venue.

For out-of-season workouts, strength and conditioning sessions, and skill sessions, Certified Athletic Trainers are on call 24 hours a day. All student-athletes and coaches receive an emergency card with home and cell phone numbers of the Certified Athletic Trainers and all medical facilities and practitioners. All coaches are required to maintain First Aid, CPR, and AED training. In the event of an emergency when a Certified Athletic Trainer is not present, it is the responsibility of the head coach or acting head coach to begin basic emergency care and contact one of the Certified Athletic Trainers immediately.

The following is a brief summary of the emergency plan for each venue. In the event of an emergency, ambulance directions for each specific athletic venue and emergency procedure cards will be posted at each site.  Changes may be made to the plans, and Athletics staff will receive updates. In the event of an emergency, the first action is to call Public Safety (209) 946-3911 and inform them of the situation. They will send an ambulance, police unit, and/or fire truck, if necessary. Under no circumstances is a coach or an administrator to transport an injured or sick person to a doctor or hospital, whether the person is a student, a staff or faculty member, a camper, or a member of the community.

Evacuation Procedures

The situation causing an evacuation of any University of the Pacific athletics facilities will be a major concern.  Evacuation could occur from either man-made disasters or natural disasters.  There may be a likelihood that panic will ensue and people will be pushing and running to avoid the situation.  This type of evacuation can become very dangerous.  This plan is prepared to lower the risk of death and serious injury and to prevent as much destruction of property as possible.

Three major parts of the plan will be:

  1. Pre-evacuation Procedures
  2. Actual evacuation of the facilities
  3. Post-evaluation of the incident

If these parts are followed, any emergency evacuation that is necessary will reduce the chance of death or serious injury and destruction.

Pre-Evacuation Procedures

  • It is extremely important to have a close working relationship with public safety representatives.
  • Establish staging areas for police, fire, medical and a landing area for helicopters.
  • All exit gates leading to the parking lots should be opened.
  • All vehicle gates should be opened.
  • All traffic and parking officials should be notified immediately.
  • Preparation for search and rescue operations should begin.
  • A prisoner control area should be set up if needed.
  • Mass casualty medical center, before transportation to area hospitals, should be established.
  • All evacuation coordination will come from the University of the Pacific Public Safety Command Post.
  • The Director of Athletics for the University of the Pacific or designee should be on hand to advise and communicate with other Department of Intercollegiate Athletics personnel.  The Director of Athletics will generally be located in the Public Safety Command Post.

Key personnel for declaring an evacuation will be identified as the following:

  1. Director, University of the Pacific Public Safety or designee;
  2. Director, University of the Pacific Department of Intercollegiate Athletics or designee;
  3. Chief of Police, Stockton Police Department or designee;
  4. Lieutenant, Highway Patrol, detail commander or designee;
  5. County Sheriff or designee;
  6. Chief, Stockton Fire Department or designee;
  7. Chief, County Fire Protection District or designee; and
  8. Medical Director, Emergency Services for University Health Care.

Communications

During evacuation communications, emergency radio frequencies and special telephones (cellular phones) are extremely important because the normal lines of communications may get overloaded.

  • The University of the Pacific Public Safety Department will go to an emergency alert.  Only emergency communication traffic should be transmitted.  The University of the Pacific Public Safety Dispatcher will immediately make contact with the designated Command Post.  An open line will be continued if possible.
  • Notification of key personnel will begin immediately after the evacuation is declared, by the University of the Pacific Public Safety Dispatcher.

Evacuation Procedures

A sequence of announcements will be made depending on the immediacy and severity of the emergency.

  • The University of the Pacific Public Safety Command Post will request of the Public Address Announcer to make the announcement "Will the Event Administrator please call your office."  This will be a key phrase that will indicate a possible problem.  This information will be shared with key personnel from the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics within the facility.  When this phrase is heard, all radio traffic except emergency traffic should stop.
  • If it is determined that an evacuation is necessary, a second announcement will state that an evacuation is taking place.  All personnel will be asked to leave the facility area.  They will be informed to evacuate the facility in an orderly fashion.
  • All officials and event staff must react in a professional and calm manner-this will reduce the likelihood of panic.
  • Once the decision has been made to evacuate the facility, the event should not resume under any circumstances.  This prevents the reverse flow of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
  • The public will be directed to leave the facility and the associated parking areas.
  • The Box Office and ticket booths will be closed and locked immediately to avoid the opportunity for theft and to prevent people requesting refunds during an evacuation.

Event Personnel Evacuation Assignments

  • Public Safety officers and event staff personnel will immediately take up positions at the exit gates.
  • Public Safety officers and event staff will insure that all gates are open as soon as possible.  No one will be allowed to re-enter the facility, except emergency response personnel.
  • Public Safety officers will be alert to control panic situations. The officers and event staff will direct people to the exit gates; in addition the officers will request that all people leave the parking areas in an orderly fashion.
  • Public Safety officers and event staff will be assigned to parking lots to assist with emergency exiting of vehicles.  The exit traffic patterns will be followed.
  • Public Safety officers will move into designated areas and direct all personnel to exits as soon as possible.
  • Event staff should be alert to disabled and senior citizens.
  • Event staff will be alert to dignitaries, key officials, and performers when necessary.

Facility Perimeter Control

What happens on the outside of the facility is also very important:

  • Public Safety officers should stay in the parking lots and request that people stay calm and drive safely.
  • The regular Public Safety supervisor will insure that an officer is on each side of the facility to assist with any emergencies just outside the stadium.
  • Public Safety officers will insure that all barricades are taken down and removed out of the way.
  • Public Safety officers and event staff will assist when necessary in preventing anyone from going back into the facility or area.
  • Public Safety officers and event staff will intercept, and designate a "safe area" for as many news media people as possible.  All news media personnel will be confined to one area.  This area should be well away from any dangerous situation.

Post-Evacuation Critique

The Director of the University of the Pacific Public Safety Department will, as soon as possible after the evacuation, convene a meeting of all emergency personnel involved in the evacuation. In addition, facilities and event management personnel from the University of the Pacific Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will be invited.  Additional personnel, as deemed necessary by the University Public Safety Director, will be invited.  The report will address:

  • Evaluation of the event which caused the evacuation.
  • Evaluation of the actual evacuation.
  • A report will be prepared by the Director of the University of the Pacific Public Safety Department.

Pacific Connect

All coaches, staff, and student-athletes are required to enroll in Pacific Connect, a campus emergency notification system that allows the Public Safety Department and other key administrators to send time-sensitive notifications via voice, e-mail, and text messaging.
