Indoor event first aid cover is an extremely important aspect of most indoor events.
All too often overlooked and many a regret after an incident.
Whether it is a pentathlon or other sports tournament event, a retail or trade event, charity fundraiser, dancing competition, or even leisure arena, no matter what the indoor event is, everybody wants the event to be successful and success is counted in many ways.
From a first aid perspective, incidents need to be dealt with calmly and professionally, everybody expects to enjoy their time at the indoor event.
Even the most minor incident could spoil a person’s visit and indeed the party in which they belong, be it friends or family. The knock-on effect of a minor incident can affect many others, even escalating it to a potentially major incident if there is no rapid medical intervention.
In what appears to be minor chest pain or suspected indigestion may escalate to a heart attack. A choking event during food tasting or dining can be fatal.
A small indoor event may only require a solo first aider. They could be based, highly visible in the event itself or in a separate room.
Where the risk is higher, perhaps an indoor athletic event, we may need to look at adding more equipment, this could be one or more patient beds, perhaps oxygen cylinders and defibrillators.
Clearly, the higher the risk the more first aiders and more equipment is required.
We absolutely guarantee not to upsell your first aid requirements, this means, if you only need a solo first aider, that is all we will supply. We won’t put just one solo first aider in an extremely high-risk event either.
We’re happy to discuss your indoor event and first aid cover requirements. Whether it is a solo first aider indoors or indeed ambulance on standby.
An ambulance is a great focal point and an ideal base for treating patients.
In extreme events where the risk level is much higher, you may wish to have an ambulance to transport patients to hospital and if necessary using emergency blue lights. Under these circumstances, the ambulance must be CQC (Quality Care Commission) registered for quality control.
We would advise booking a paramedic and technician as crew for the emergency ambulance but it is important to know that if there is an emergency and a casualty must go to the hospital via the CQC registered ambulance, you will have no first aid cover unless you also book additional first aiders.
Some extreme activity indoor events need extreme medical cover whilst small and moderate events need a lower level of first aid cover.
