Issue with that is most field owners aren't on the field during play, they are back at the shop or what have you making sure the place runs smoothly.

I’d say that ideally yes there should be someone cpr/first aid certified. My own solution is that I am personally certified, so whenever I go, I am the someone

I think the question is if the Field should have a CPR/First Aid certified person?
I voted No... primarily because that is a simple certification that won't help much if a serious accident happens with this sport.

That training does little to prepare someone to deal with a player that just shot their eye out in the worst way. Or had an air tank launch into someone's skull and split them open. In that situation moving the person would cause more harm than good unless you had appropriate training.

Things like heatstroke and sudden fatigue should be just good player awareness and getting someone to shelter, or inside, then calling emergency services.

Large events some counties even require an Emergency Professional, or ambulance available on site, based on how many people are there.

CPR/First Aid certification is a great thing to have, but to require it is just not necessary.
Having a practical and well known emergency plan with identified leaders would be more beneficial once the freaking out starts happening.

I agree with this statement. I think this might even actually be a requirement for paintball fields, or any business for that matter? I know where I work (in an office), we are required to have safety procedures in place and leaders established.

seajay I get what your saying
Not trying to make it a requirement just a suggestion.

Having some one who has the basic knowledge to do the primary assessment of the person and being able to offer care whilst you wait for ems to arrive.such as starting to control bleeding, keeping the person as comfortable and calm as possible ect.

Ya, it's definitely a nice to have, and something I think personally everyone should get at least once.

So as a suggestion, yes.

It's just one of those things that is nice to think about, but in reality it's adrenaline pumping chaos. You'd be surprised how quickly people come to help and then realize, even with first aid training, they have no idea what to do. Then people are in confusing positions since they feel they must help, but know that can't.

If there was a training to take, take First Responder.
