In case of accidents on site

Always check the breathing and airways of the injured person. Have in mind that there can be injuries that you can’t see. Do not move an injured person – only move them if it’s life threatening.

  1. Call or have someone to contact Clara Brandkvist (Duchess Isabetta del Verde).
  2. If the situation is critical, call or have someone else to call 112 and BEGIN CPR.

Direct the emergency services to the following address:

Kasteel de Berckt
De Berckt 1, 5991 PD Baarlo

  1. Make sure to get other event stewards to help. Inform the others about what has happened.
  2. The other event stewards on site should make sure to create a safe and calm space around the injured and the people who are working on helping them.
    • All remaining event stewards should clear the road to the injured and help Clara (Duchess Isabetta del Verde) with whatever she needs.
  3. The head event steward needs to get the contact information to the injured person’s family and inform them about what has happened and where they should turn for further information.

In case of bleeding wounds

In case of a weak small bleed, you can wash the wound (soap and water) and then let it dry and put on a bandaid.

If there is a slowly flowing bleed, you are to wash the wound, put a tourniquet and contact Clara (Duchess Isabetta del Verde), 0900 8844, or the hospital.

If the blood is pulsating or heavy flowing you have to put hard pressure on the wound. Try to keep the wound closed and the injured body part high. Call Clara (Duchess Isabetta del Verde) [phone number removed] and 112 for an ambulance.

Internal bleeding can come from a violent heavy blow to the abdomen or other parts of the body. The injured can go into shock.

Burn wound

Cool down the scorched area with cold water for 5-10 minutes. For a burn that is bigger than your hand, or if the scorch is in the face, over joints or near genitals, call for Clara (Duchess Isabetta del Verde) or 0900 8844 to get further instructions.

Drowning incidents

If the person is unconscious start mouth to mouth resuscitation. If the person has no pulse, START CPR. Call 112.

In case of concussion

If a person has received a severe blow to the head, they should be under supervision. If they get a headache, dizziness, nausea or gets very tired, call 0900 8844 and describe the symptoms to get further instructions. If they fall unconscious call 112.

In case of an accident with electricity

If you think a person has had an injury due to electrical shock, immediately unplug the appliance or tool if possible, or move the person away from the powersource, but make sure you yourself are safe.

If they are unconscious, start CPR and call 112. Everyone that has been in an accident with electricity has to go to the hospital for further examination.

Allergic reactions

Symptoms of an a strong allergic reaction:

  • tingling in the lips and/or tongue
  • itching hand palms and footpads or itching in the mouth
  • sometimes hives
  • swollen tongue, lips, face
  • cramps
  • difficulty breathing
  • high pulse
  • stomach pain
  • vomiting
  • clammy skin
  • restlessness
  • repeated yawn like movements
  • unconsciousness

If the person has an EpiPen it is to be used immediately if you suspect a severe allergic reaction. It is never dangerous to give a dose from an EpiPen, even if it is unnecessary. You can also give Betapred (10-12 pills dissolved in water) and/or an antihistamine pill if the person can swallow.

Keep a calm surrounding around a person that has an allergic reaction, keep the airways free and give mouth to mouth resuscitation if necessary.

If a person has a severe allergic reaction call 112.

In case of epileptic seizure

In case of a big seizure- grand mal - the person suddenly goes unconscious and starts cramping.
In case of a minor seizure - petit mal - the person that suffers the episode seems absent and doesn’t react when spoken to for a shorter period of time.

During a big seizure you are to place the person carefully on the ground, floor, bunk or sofa in recovery position and they are to be kept warm. Others who observe the seizure often think it looks scary and needs to be calmed down.

Keep track of how long the seizure lasts, often there is some medicine that should be given (which the event stewards or the persons close ones will know).

If the seizure doesn’t end within 2-5 minutes, call 112. If a person has a seizure without known epilepsy call 112.

In case of fire

Please evacuate as per the evacuation plan posted on the floor/in the room of the building you are in. Once outdoors, or if already outdoors, go to the orchard as this will be the meeting place for the event stewards to make sure everyone is safe nad accounted for.

The person who first discovers the fire has the responsibility to:

  1. Evacuate people that are in immediate danger.
  2. Call 112.
  3. Inform the event stewards.
  4. If the fire isn’t too big, try to put it out.

If you’re not able to put out the fire and it is in a building, close all doors and windows. Think of safety first!

If it is a pavilion that is on fire, evacuate quickly and call out about the fire.

The event stewards will work closely with site owners, event staff, and emergency services to manage the emergency and communicate/assign tasks where needed.
