Our Basic Life Support Medics provide more than ten thousand hours of service every year at a wide range of community events. These clinicians are fully supported with twenty-four hour phone advice and come equipped with a comprehensive trauma pack, oxygen resuscitation equipment an automatic defibrillator and other equipment as required for your event. Every medic undergoes rigorous assessment and regular credentialing – almost all are undertaking tertiary paramedic training, and each one has completed nationally recognised advanced first aid and resuscitation qualifications as well as emergency asthma management and spinal immobilisation.
On event day, you will be greeted by your medical team who will ensure that the medical centre is setup in advance of the planned start time. The team will establish communications and will ensure procedures for ambulance access and identification of and response to medical incidents are in place and understood by all stakeholders.
A range of options are available for your medical facility. Highly visible medical tents can be provided from 3x3m to 6x6m. A comprehensive fit out can be provided to an existing or provided tent or structure. We can provide vehicle based services including a trailer-based option. Additionally, we can provide our 20’ ISO container which is air conditioned and fully equipped to provide high level care to three stretcher patients at a time.
Equipment available for your event includes a variety of stretchers, spinal immobilisation equipment, patient monitors, intravenous drip packs, emergency medications, ventilators, blood testing equipment, trauma equipment, plastering supplies and minor surgical packs.
We are specialists in care trackside and on the sideline. Our medics can provide their service in austere environments and are able to adapt their practice and setup to the needs of the event. Basic Life Support Medics are ideal for deployment on the side of the football field or netball court. Basic Life Support medics can also be used as part of a multi-tier response, such as at the BMX Nationals, where four trackside medics provided the first response to crashes with the support of buggy-mounted paramedics operating from the medical centre.
We are also able to provide flexible aquatic safety services using cross-trained medics who have, as a minimum a Pool Lifeguard Certification. Staff with open-water qualifications are also available, and these services can be provided with a wide range of support equipment including personal watercraft and inflatable rescue boats. These rescue services have been used by clients including Moreton Bay Regional Council (where we provide year round coverage of the Settlement Cove Lagoon), the Met and the Tough Mudder and Spartan Race events.
