Outdoor event first aid services are an extremely important aspect of any outdoor event.
All too often overlooked and many a regret after an incident.
Everybody wants the outdoor event to be successful and success is counted in many ways.
From the first aid perspective, incidents were dealt with calmly and professionally, everybody enjoyed their time at the outdoor 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.
Where the risk is higher we 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.
We promise not to upsell your first aid requirements if you only need a solo first aider, that is all we will supply.
We’re happy to discuss your outdoor event and first aid cover requirements. Whether it is a solo first aider in a response vehicle, a tent or indeed ambulance.
An ambulance is a great focal point and an ideal base for treating patients, on larger events we can get to an incident much quicker.
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 outdoor events need extreme medical cover whilst small and moderate events need a lower level of first aid cover.
