TriHealth Keeping Fans Safe During Bengals Training Camp
July 31, 2012
From sunscreen and Band-Aids to serious medical issues, like heart attack, TriHealth Event Medicine is taking care of fans during Bengals Training Camp 2012.
"We're hoping to provide EMS coverage for fans, and we're also working with the Bengals' trainers if anything happens on the field," says Doug Harris, TriHealth Event Medicine Manager.
Keeping You Safe
TriHealth Event Medicine is stationed in a shaded tent to keep anyone who needs medical help out of the heat and direct sunlight. The tent is equipped with an air conditioning unit, first response bags, and over-the-counter medications like Benadryl, Band-Aids and eye wash.
"First response bags – if something happens over there, we need to go out and see the players or the fans, that will have everything we can do, from resuscitation to something as simple as a blister on the foot," says Bryan Hanna, TriHealth Event Medicine.
Excited for the Season
Harris is looking forward to the 2012-2013 season and expects "good things" from the Bengals this year.
"Of course, as always, the key is, how healthy are they going to stay?" he says. "Injuries always kind of factor into this, but they've got a great medical staff, and we'll keep them out on the field."
