AtlantiCare borrows from Maroon 5 and Rascal Flatts
song titles for summer concert safety tips

AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, which will staff a medical tent for upcoming beach concerts in Atlantic City, is using the music to reinforce summer safety messages for those attending the events and all who enjoy the Shore.

“One of the best summer activities at the Shore is attending a summer concert,” said Thomas Brabson, DO, chairman of Emergency Medical Services, AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

“Providing care at the beach for large-scale events makes it convenient for those who might need care. One emergency physician, six paramedics, six emergency medical technicians, two mobile intensive care unit nurses will be among those caring for those who might need emergency medical services.” AtlantiCare will provide a care tent that will be at Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard and the Beach for the Maroon 5 and Rascal Flatts performances on August 16 and August 20, respectively. Brabson explained ARMC EMS would transport any serious injuries to ARMC Atlantic City Campus Emergency Department.

Using some of the artists’ song titles, AtlantiCare shared a few safety “Things That Matter” while you “Can’t Stop” dancing to the concert music:

“Give A Little More” time to get to and from the concerts

  • Drive safely and make sure to leave extra time for travel and parking.

The only place to have your “Hands All Over” is the steering wheel

  • Refrain from texting, dialing the phone or doing anything that distracts you. It takes less than three seconds for a distracted driver to crash. No text message or phone call is worth your life or that of someone else.

It’s no “Secret” - seatbelts save lives

  • Buckle up on your way to and from the concerts.

“Remember to ‘Take A Little of Your Time’ to apply sunscreen

  • Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can burn your skin, age skin prematurely, and lead to skin cancer.
  • Be sure to use sunscreen with a sun-protection factor, or SPF, of at least 30.
  • Reapply sunscreen regularly – especially if you are in the sun and/or water for extended periods.

“Once” the music starts to “Play” remember to stay hydrated

  • Keep water or a sports drink handy at all times to stay hydrated.

“Wake Up Call”: Stay sober in ‘The Sun’

  • When you’re dancing to the music, be sure to stay hydrated with non-alcoholic beverages.

Walking long distances in the sun or on the sand can make it “Harder To Breathe” for those who have asthma or emphysema

  • If you have those conditions, refrain from walking long distances in the sun or on the sand.

“This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” your eyes if you don’t wear appropriate eye protection

  • Always remember to wear sunglasses that protect your eyes from UVA and UVB rays while you’re on the beach.

Remember “Where You Are”, help us know who you are, and plan ahead

  • Make a plan in case you are displaced from your friends or family. Pick a landmark that will make it easier to find your way back to one another after the concert.
  • Always carry some form of identification with you.
