Red Cross First Aid Team supports the Cornhuskers
By Mike Meehan
Wearing red to Memorial Sta
dium on football Saturday means
more to three UNL students than
just showing support for the Corn
huskers. To Sara Egan, Carla Jans and Tim
Schulz, red is part of the uniform of
the Red Cross First Aid Team. They
are three of the more than 56 volun
teers who watch over the safety
of football fans during every game.
According to Egan, a graduate
student, each member must have
fulfilled the required CPU and mul
timedia first aid training. In addi
tion to fulfilling those basic re
quirements, Chuck Elsom, director
of the first aid team, said that eve
ryone who wants to work on the
stadium team goes before a screen
ing committee and then attends
training sessions. They also have to
work 20 other events during the
year, he said.
Jans, a senior pre-med major team
member, is also a CPR instructor, as
are about half of the team members.
"I enjoy working with the Red
Cross and the campus red Cross,"
she said "The people are profes
sional and well-organized.
The team's professionalism and
effectiveness has not gone unno
ticed by the fans. Nancy Osborne
related an incident in which she
discovered the great need for such a
team. She said she was in another
Big Eight stadium when she noticed
someone who needed help.
"Two rows in front of me an
elderly man suffered a heart attack.
We couldn't find help in the sta
dium. There were no Red Cross
crews, no ushers, no one to help,"
Schulz said the number of calls
they get varies from game to game
and depends on the weather.
"I have never used my CPR train
ing, but it can happen," he said.
Elsom said, "We're the first to
respond. We render help and access
the situation to the people below
who are in contact with the Eastern
ambulances and the Bryan Heart
team." There are two first aid sta
tions located in the northwest and
southwest corners of the stadium.
Calls to the Red Cross during the
games range from bee stings to heat
exhaustion, said Steve Lewis, pub
lic relations director. Twenty-five
calls make for a busy game, he said.
"At last year's Florida State game,
125 people suffered from heat stroke.
Some were our people, who were
carrying people down from the
stands," Lewis said.
In order to operate in the third
largest populated area in the state,
the, first aid team is divided among
the four areas of the stadium. Two
members are placed at the top of
each of the bleachers along with a
litter crew, which is located lower
in the stands. More members are on
This organization is designed to
insure the safety of the fans. The
volunteers of the stadium team are
faced with possibilities of emer
gency situations but they said they
still find their jobs rewarding.
"It's fun and an exciting expe
rience. You meet a lot of people,"
This Saturday's home game also
is the Red Cross's First Aid Team
Appreciation Day. The goal is to
raise $20,000 during the game to
help support the numerous com
munity and campus activities spon
sored by the Lancaster chapter of
the Red Cross.

Many donations of clothes have
already been received and are being
stored in the YWCA and the homes of
some of the board members because
the room is not finished, said Dorothy
Seaton, Job Outfitters board member.
Many local beauty salons have given
Job Outfitters coupons for free cuts
The group also is taking donations of
uniforms and special clothing needed
for some jobs.
Someone donated a pair of steel
toed boots and someone will surely need
them, said board member Emilia Gon
Users of Job Outfitters must be
referred to the free program by a
human service agency.
Job Outfitters does ask that the
women they help donate some piece of
clothing back to the program after they

received help to help somebody else,"
Gonalzez Clements said.
Barret said she brainstormed and
