EMERGENCY PROCEDURES AT DOG EVENTS
Each club holding a member or licensed event must develop and detail a Disaster and Emergency Plan for that event. The Plan form must be completed and filed with AKC and will be considered a part of the event application.
Clubs must advise local authorities (police, fire department, medical services, etc.) of their event, including the exact location, ingress, egress and duration, within thirty days prior to the event.
All specialty clubs are strongly encouraged to have a qualified emergency medical technician (CPR certified) in attendance at each event.
At group and all-breed conformation events, clubs are required to have a qualified emergency medical technician (CPR certified) in attendance from one hour prior to the start of judging until completion of all judging.
A Red Cross-approved emergency first aid kit must be available at all events.
Emergency care at all events must also comply with local community standards.
Personnel will be on duty after show hours at show sites where dogs are left overnight.
At least one working cellular telephone is required to be on the show grounds during show hours.
Clubs holding group and all-breed conformation events in public facilities must identify the location of all onsite automated external defibrillators (AED). When available, the location of the AED device is required to be listed in the judging program and show catalog and maps or directions must be available at the superintendents or show secretaries desk. It is recommended that the club request the EMT in attendance to provide an AED in situations when a site does not have one.
