Other emergencies that could initiate an EAP:
Severe Weather, or Fire - Head coaches and Tribe board officers will determine if play or practice is safe
Lightning - “The bottom line is that if you hear thunder, you need to get inside immediately, ”Lightning can strike up to 10 miles from a thunderstorm, which is about the distance that the sound of thunder can travel and be heard. All thunderstorms produce lightning, and each lightning strike is a potential killer.”
If lightning is seen or thunder is heard, then preparing for evacuation should occur. Once lightning is detected and felt to be within 6 miles, all individuals should already be in safe structures and play should be suspended for 30 minutes. This requires awareness of the weather conditions as well as understanding how long it will take for participants and spectators to get to the safe structures.
Resumption of Activity: There should be 30 minutes between the last sound of thunder and the last flash of lightning before activity is resumed. The 30-minute clock may be re-set as more activity is heard or seen. During evening activities, lightning may persist despite being far away, and the lightning channel (from the sky to the ground) should be used. More sophisticated weather review systems (internet-based systems showing the exact distance of the storm as well as the direction it is moving) can be particularly useful in this regard.
If Lightning Strikes: Individuals that have been struck by lightning do not carry an electrical charge and therefore resuscitation efforts should not be delayed. Emergency treatment, including the activation of the EMS system by calling 911, applying an automatic external defibrillator (AED) and performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), in that order, should be initiated as soon as possible. If possible, the victim should be moved to a safer location prior to initiating emergency measures.
***Update to Truckee Tribe Air Quality Policy**** (Fall 2022)
After receiving feedback from members, and in order to align our club with other local area youth sports clubs, and with our league (HSLL), we have amended out Air Quality Policy to use a threshold of 125, down from 150.
We will now use the Purple Air site
Head coaches and Tribe board officers will determine if play or practice is safe by 3pm.
AQI of 125 or above
UNHEALTHY: All practices are cancelled or moved inside if a location is available. Games will be rescheduled or cancelled. If the AQI is less than 150 and descending, a game may begin if the referee present believes the AQI will continue to drop and the game can be completed safely.
AQI is 100 - 124
Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups:
Practices will proceed, however, coaches should:
Send notice to their respective teams that the AQI is between 100 and 125, and that players sensitive to a higher AQI should not participate.
Continue to monitor the AQI and discontinue practice if the AQI reaches 125.
Monitor athletes for any signs of sensitivity to air pollution or smoke.
Limit and control running and conditioning
Increase the number of water and rest breaks
Limit or excuse those student-athletes that are members of the sensitive group
Check the AQI periodically to stay updated on changing conditions. If AQI reaches, 125 practice is cancelled or everyone must go inside.
Please review additional important information regarding Air Quality Index and monitoring from the Washoe County Health District.
AQI is less than 100
All activities are OK.
