Norman Regional Health System and EMSSTAT Provide First Aid Services at Korn Ferry Tour Championship

Norman Regional Health System and Norman Regional EMSSTAT are proud to serve as the first aid sponsors for the Korn Ferry Tour Compliance Solutions Championship at Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club in Norman, Oklahoma.

Norman Regional's medical professionals and volunteers will be stationed at medical tents throughout the course, while EMSSTAT will provide emergency medical and transport services if necessary for players, staff and spectators.

Tournament play starts Thursday and runs through Sunday, with temperatures expected to reach the high 80s to mid-90s with heat indices close to 100. Norman Regional offers the following tips to help spectators stay safe in the heat:

Hydration Tips:

  • Drink plenty of water before, during and after being outdoors.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine, which can dehydrate you.
  • Carry a water bottle and take frequent sips.

Sun Protection:

  • Apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher at least 15-20 minutes before going outside. Reapply every two hours, or more frequently if sweating or swimming.
  • Wear a hat, sunglasses and light, UV-protective clothing.
  • Seek shade whenever possible, especially during peak sun hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.).

Recognizing Heat-Related Illnesses:

Heat Exhaustion: Symptoms include heavy sweating, weakness, cold, pale, and clammy skin, a fast but weak pulse, nausea or vomiting, and fainting. Move to a cooler location, lie down, loosen clothing, apply cool, wet cloths and sip water.

Heat Stroke: Symptoms include a high body temperature (above 103°F), hot, red, dry, or moist skin, rapid and strong pulse, and possible unconsciousness. Heat stroke is a medical emergency – call 911 immediately.

Additional Tips:

  • Plan to attend early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid the hottest part of the day.
  • Monitor children and the elderly closely, as they are more vulnerable to heat-related illnesses.
  • Take breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas.

"We are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone at the championship," said Kyle Hurley, Director of EMSSTAT. "Our team is ready to provide immediate medical assistance and transport if needed, and we encourage all spectators to take necessary precautions to stay safe in the heat."
