The Chief of Medical and Rescue Services is responsible for organising adequate first aid and medical coverage during the official training periods and the actual competition. They must arrange an appropriate facility to which injured competitors should be taken and treated.

The Race Doctor coordinates plans with the Team Doctors before the start of the official training. During training and the races they must be in telephone or radio communication with his assistants. They must co-ordinate plans with the Chief of Competition before the start of the official training.

A Doctor, who should be a good skier, should be ready at the start to deal with any eventuality and has to stay in contact with the Jury and the members of the Rescue Service. This task can be delegated to a team doctor. Details of the Medical Support Requirements are given in Chapter 1 of the FIS Medical Guide (containing the Medical Rules and Guidelines).
