IV (L) EMERGENCY STAGE PROCEDURES
During the first tech rehearsal of each run, the Artistic Director will have any people with medical training or CPR training identify themselves.
People with fevers, persistent coughs, chest pains, severe headache, nausea or dizziness should not go out on stage. The first defense to on-stage emergencies is not to go on stage if you aren’t feeling well.
If a person starts to feel ill or faint while on stage, they should quietly alert the people to either side of them and try to sit down on the risers until they feel better. At an appropriate applause break between songs, they should get up and quietly leave the risers and exit to back stage, with their neighbors’ assistance if necessary. Let the people around you know you aren’t feeling well so they can be prepared if there are more serious complications later.
