Emergency Action Planning Guides
August 2015: The OHSAA is pleased to provide each member school with a copy of the outstanding Emergency Action Plan, "Anyone Can Save A Life," a first-of-its kind program for after school practices and events. This program, which was developed by the Minnesota State High School League, has been made available to all schools in the United States through a generous grant from the Medtronic Foundation with distribution funded by the National Federation of State Associations (NFHS) Foundation.

The Anyone Can Save A Life training DVD and website – www.anyonecansavealife.org – along with the guide’s implementation instructions, handouts and forms have been prepared to help train coaches, advisors, students and event staff. In addition, there is an array of resources that cover all aspects of preparing and managing an effective emergency response program.
