A message from Master Owain:
Will there be First Aid Services at the War of the Lilies?
The short answer is yes.
The longer answer follows.
In an announcement posted on the Society Seneschal’s webpage, the President of SCA, Inc., and the Vice President of Operations of SCA, Inc. announced the decision of the BOD to close the Office of the Chirurgeonate as of August 10th, 2015. (You can read the full announcement at: http://sca.org/BOD/announcements/chirurgeonate.html).
This does not ban first aid from happening at events, but prohibits that first aid from being “affiliated with the SCA, Inc. and its Kingdoms and local groups.”
So what does this mean for First Aid Services at The War of the Lilies? There will be First Aid Services provided by an independent group of First Aid and CPR trained individuals not affiliated with, sponsored by, nor funded by The SCA, Inc., The Kingdom of Calontir, nor The War of the Lilies.
Because of the Board’s Announcement, we will be self funding and rely on the generosity of individuals.
Should you need it, there will be a First Aid Services Station tent in its usual place at the corner of The High Road and King’s Highway. Liles Staff will be able to contact a First Aid and CPR trained individual by radio. A First Aid and CPR trained individual will be present at the armored combat battles.
There will be stand-alone First Aid boxes scattered throughout the Lilies Site. But, because of the self supporting nature of our funding there will not be as many of these boxes as in the past. Their locations will be noted in the Lilies’ Site book.
We will also have directions to area hospitals and urgent care facilities, and a phone book for looking up local pharmacies at the First Aid Tent.
I hope you find this information useful and reassuring.
