For Immediate Release: August 14, 2015
AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, which will staff a medical tent for upcoming beach concerts in Atlantic City, is using the music to reinforce summer safety messages for those attending the events and all who enjoy the Shore.
“One of the best summer activities at the Shore is attending a summer concert,” said Thomas Brabson, DO, chairman of Emergency Medical Services, AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.
“Providing care at the beach for large-scale events makes it convenient for those who might need care. One emergency physician, six paramedics, six emergency medical technicians, two mobile intensive care unit nurses will be among those caring for those who might need emergency medical services.” AtlantiCare will provide a care tent that will be at Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard and the Beach for the Maroon 5 and Rascal Flatts performances on August 16 and August 20, respectively. Brabson explained ARMC EMS would transport any serious injuries to ARMC Atlantic City Campus Emergency Department.
Using some of the artists’ song titles, AtlantiCare shared a few safety “Things That Matter” while you “Can’t Stop” dancing to the concert music:
“Give A Little More” time to get to and from the concerts
The only place to have your “Hands All Over” is the steering wheel
It’s no “Secret” - seatbelts save lives
“Remember to ‘Take A Little of Your Time’ to apply sunscreen
“Once” the music starts to “Play” remember to stay hydrated
“Wake Up Call”: Stay sober in ‘The Sun’
Walking long distances in the sun or on the sand can make it “Harder To Breathe” for those who have asthma or emphysema
“This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” your eyes if you don’t wear appropriate eye protection
Remember “Where You Are”, help us know who you are, and plan ahead
