CRISP CO., GA (WALB) -

First responders in Crisp County work to keep young athletes safe this school year.

Crisp County High School held its first Back-to-Sports forum on Tuesday to educate parents on sports injuries including concussions, heat illnesses and cardiac arrests.

The program is a partnership with the NFL and American Heart Association.

Feedback from parents will be shared with both organizations.

"In the unfortunate situation if a kid does get hurt, somewhere along the path they're probably going to see these people and their departments and be involved with them in many ways. So we just want them to see that we're coming together as a family," said Certified Athletic Trainer John Paul Hamilton.

For those who missed Tuesday's event, organizers are working to set up another event in the coming weeks.
