It is important to know the location of phones, emergency exits, and entrances at a sporting venue in case you need to direct EMS personnel. You should know where the field is located so you're able to direct emergency crews to your location. It's also a good idea to devise a plan in case of lightning prior to the beginning of outdoor practice.
