Defibrillator.

Post by theoriginalfatcat » Tue Oct 19, 2021 6:12 pm

I'm wondering if there is one at Blackwell Meadows, does anyone know?

Good question that.

The ground grading does not require very much in terms of medical facilities for either players or spectators!
There must be a suitably equipped medical treatment room for players located in the vicinity of the
players’ dressing rooms. Access to this room must not be via the home or away dressing rooms.
Clubs must designate on match days a suitable room for the treatment of spectators within the
boundary of the ground. The designated room must contain a bed or comfortable seating, with cold
and, ideally, hot water, together with paper towels. Reusable individual towels are not permitted.
The location of the room must be suitably sign posted.
At least one stretcher for the removal of injured players from the field of play must be provided.


4. MEDICAL
There must be a nominated and suitably qualified person in attendance to assist with spectator
problems unless the St John Ambulance Brigade, Red Cross Society or other capable agency are in

attendance. The requirements of the Guide to Safety at Sports Grounds are for one first aider per
1000 anticipated spectators, with a minimum of two.
If a crowd of less than 2000 is anticipated, known and practiced arrangements should be in place to
summon either a doctor or NHS ambulance alternative. For crowds of over 2000, an experienced
crowd doctor should be in attendance.
NB The above in no way purports to be a comprehensive list of Health and Safety issues which it is
the responsibility of a club to address. Clubs are recommended to arrange regular safety audits
conducted by persons with the appropriate expertise.

Why not ask the Club?

Because I'm asking on here "Virtual Feethams Open now for discussion of all things Darlo!" ;)

I thought they were mandatory at steps 4 and above.

They didn't use a defibrillator on Nicky Hunt.

I believe Danny O'Connor is the custodian of the defib. There are also two qualified paramedics plus a 'Crowd Doctor' present at each match, although as Spen points out, the Crowd Doctor is only mandatory for gates above 2,000.

There are actually 3 at Blackwell on a match day. One that Danny carries, one on the wall outside near the main entrance and one behind the bar.
