911 Emergency Reporting Guidelines

The most important help you can provide to a victim who is seriously injured is to call for professional medical assistance.

All PCLL Board members, managers, coaches, parents, umpires and volunteers should use the following procedures for reporting emergencies:

Dial 9-1-1 FROM CLOSEST AVAILABLE PHONE

  1. Know the location of the incident you are reporting and communicate that location clearly. If you are unsure of the location, be prepared to give a street name or a landmark that will help.
  2. Let the operator know your callback number in case you are disconnected.
  3. Speak slowly and distinctly.
  4. If you are asked to repeat, please do so. Reception quality is sometimes poor due to topographical or atmospheric conditions that interfere with your transmission.

Give the dispatcher the necessary information. Answer any questions that he or she might ask.

Most dispatchers will ask:

  • The exact location or address of the emergency.
  • The telephone number from which the call is being made?
  • The caller’s name?
  • What happened — i.e., a baseball-related accident, bicycle accident, fire, fall, etc.?
  • How many people are involved?
  • The condition of the injured person — i.e., unconscious, chest pains, or severe bleeding?
  • What help is being given (first aid, CPR, etc.)?

Do not hang up until the dispatcher instructs you to hang up.

The dispatcher may be able to tell you how to best care for the victim.

Continue to care for the victim until professional help arrives.

Appoint someone to go to the street and look for the ambulance or fire engine and flag them down if necessary. In the event of a medical emergency on the playing field, please clear the field of all nonessential people. Players should go to their respective dugouts and remain there until the situation is cleared. There is to be absolutely no playing or practicing while an injured player is being attended to.
