Abstract

Special events can produce a large gathering of people that includes a wide age range. Health care personnel should be involved in the event planning to ensure that the staff has an adequate preparation to care for children and the correct equipment required to give safe care to children and adolescents. Large events require planning that considers crowd size; personnel; medical triage and aid stations; communications; transportation; medical records; public information and education; mutual aid; and data collection. Children's conditions and their vulnerability to sudden illness and injury require advance planning to meet their health care needs.
