HEALTH & SAFETY
Managers and Coaches are given Health & Safety information and protocols prior to each season. Each team is provided with First Aid supplies which can be replenished in consultation with the First Aid Officer. If an injury occurs during training or play an Injury Report will need to be made to the First Aid Officer.

HELICOPTER CALL OUTS

Teams should have a crowd control method that can be readily deployed
As a suggestion, near the middle of the cricket oval could be used as a landing pad if there are no overhead wires and the perimeter is able to be cleared.
