“We’re Going to Need Everybody”—Recording Captured Emergency Response to Football Game Crisis

From a New York Times story by Ken Belson, Alan Blinder, and Robin Stein headlined “‘We’re Going to Need Everybody’: Recording Captured Response to N.F.L. Crisis”:

The radio traffic moments after Buffalo Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field Monday night in Cincinnati crackled with urgency.

“I don’t like how he went down,” one person said on a channel that appears to have included medical personnel on the sidelines.

Seconds later, as the gravity of Hamlin’s condition became clearer, another person was more emphatic.

“We’re going to need everybody,” he declared. “All-call, all-call,” the equivalent of a red alert.
