Marathon weekend is here! This week’s Prevea On the Move features Tom Krahn, Medical Coordinator for Cellcom Green Bay Marathon, discussing the courses, medical support and other race day details to help you be more prepared for race day and what happens along the course if you get injured or need medical attention.
Along the route: Prevea Health has 10 medical stations along the course marked by the red medical flags. The stations are staffed with licensed athletic trainers, physical therapists, nurses, and physician assistants to take care of all of your general first aid needs. For medical emergencies, the local 911 system is activated.
Finish line medical tent: This main tent at the finish line is fully staffed with physicians, registered nurses, physician assistants and emergency medical technicians with the capability to handle any general first aid needs or other medical emergencies. Paramedics from the Green Bay Fire Department are onsite with ambulance to handle emergency transportation as needed.
