SOMO is always looking for help covering our different sporting events throughout the year with certified medical personnel. We use a variety of groups to help with this including: athletic trainers, EMTs, Red Cross, etc.
At events, medical personnel will be responsible for: diagnosing the extent of an injury, deciding if an athlete needs to be taken to the hospital, applying ice, Band-Aids(R) or simply determining the proper course of action.
We require that all medical personnel be first aid/CPR certified and prefer that they work in the medical field.
If you want more detailed information on the medical aspect of events or are interested in volunteering your time as a medical professional for one of our events, contact Competition Director Susan Shaffer at 573-635-1660 or email Shaffer@somo.org.
