Gordon B. Hinckley, "If Ye Are Prepared Ye Shall Not Fear," Liahona, Nov 2005, 60-62


There are inherent risks associated with participating in Social Activites. The Social Program does not carry health or accident insurance for the participants. A medical insurance program is required by BYU-IDAHO to students enrolled in school. This policy covers accidents, which occur during Social Programs as well as many other cases. All participating matriculating students are responsible to provide their own accidental/health insurance.

Staff Objectives:

·       Cultivate seeds of Christ-like leadership and discipleship

·       Provide a variety of activities to meet the interests and abilities of participants

·       Create an atmosphere of that will allow for renewal, social interaction, and acceptance

·       Fun for everyone (provide opportunities for righteous socialization)

Facilities and Equipment

5 first aid kits have been purchased. They are available to be checked out and picked up by the managers in MC 101 (by Sister Hymas' desk).

Emergency Plans

What is deemed an emergency? An emergency is when there is any head, neck, and major joint trauma, dislocation, or bone brake. In the event of an emergency, observe the following procedures:

·       (as a note, if an ambulance comes, make sure the injured person is aware that   the treatment is free that is administered by the EMT's, but if they ride in the ambulance, they must pay the cost of the ambulance ride).

·       Ask the injured party not to move, do NOT diagnose their injury, even if you know what it is.

·       Tell them help is on its way, or have someone take them to the emergency room.

·       Make sure to fill out an injury report form, completely, and in detail.

·       After this, make sure to contact your advisor so they can do a follow-up.
