When so many young people are gathered to play approximately 800 handball matches, some injuries are bound to happen. One player gets blisters on his or her feet, another twists his or her ankle, and a third participant is bleeding from a gash near the eye.
Fortunately, the first aid-people from the Danish Red Cross are ready to handle all kinds of accidents.
At first, competent first aid is given. If the injury is extensive and requires medical treatment or maybe even a removal to hospital, the first aid-group also takes care of all practical necessities as for instance transport by car or ambulance. Moreover, Dronninglund Cup is also ready to assist with the transport of relatives.
Otherwise, the First Aid Tent is open whenever matches are being played, and the first aid-people are happy to help anyone in need – be it players, leaders, relatives – or even spectators.
