  What We Need to Address
ACSM states, “Facilities must have written
 policies for emergency response systems
and procedures that must be reviewed and
 rehearsed regularly. These policies must
    be capable of handling basic first-aid
 situations and emergency cardiac events.”
   What We Need to Address
 Need written procedures and policies that
  are step by step and easy to follow
 Need to rehearse this plan with possible
  scenarios every 3 months or so
