Be prepared to deal with unexpected emergencies at your next event. Minimize liability.
You might be aware that sports events such as motocross races, cycling races, martial arts competitions, etc. require medical standby care, but many other types of group gatherings are often overlooked. At a dinner or conference for 50 people an attendee might trip and fall, choke, or have a stroke or a heart attack. Immediate response is just as imperative.
911 response times can take as long as seven (7) minutes following the call. Having an ALS team at your event is like calling 911 and having first responders arrive before you’ve hung up the phone!
1 Certified Paramedic and 1 Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) with ALS kit, equipment and drug box.
In Advanced Life support (ALS) emergencies, a “single” paramedic or ER doctor can not deliver necessary care. For that reason Paramedics Unlimited provides EMS ALS “Standby” medical care, with two or more person treatment teams. It is not feasible to start BLS treatment, followed by ALS treatment, that might include; intubation, intravenous infusions, cardiac defibrillation, emergency drug administration and a host of additional ALS treatments, necessary to save a life, with less than two person ALS Teams.
