What can Medic 1 Provide?
Our first aiders have extended skills and maybe all that is required for some events. They will have kit appropriate to general emergencies, including defibrillators and some specific to the particular type of event they are at. AFA’s may patrol an area or remain in a medical centre. All AFA’s carry trackers allowing our control to dispatch the nearest, most appropriate first aid crew.

Emergency Medical Technicians have gained a significant amount of knowledge and skills and can work on ambulances as part of an emergency team. Providing additional levels of care, and “blue light” transfers, should they be needed.

Paramedics will work on an ambulance and provide a higher skill set than those above. They are registered, autonomous clinicians. Their skill set allows them to deliver a range of drugs and undertake invasive techniques.

As part of our event team, nurses can issue prescriptions for some medications. They may carry out additional tasks such as suturing wounds, giving injections and will often work with paramedics and EMTs.

Our team leader is responsible for managing your event. They are the sole point of contact between you as the organisers or your representative at the event and our team on site. This means that your medial provision can run smoothly. They will report back to you any concerns or health and safety issues.

Our radio controller is the centre point of communication between our team. They are responsible for dispatching crews to nearby casualties with the aid of our GPS tracking software.

We have a variety of ambulance unit types depending on our client's needs and the risk assessment. Our Frontline Paramedic and EMT ambulances are equipped to mirror what is usually present on an NHS ambulance. These are emergency “blue light” capable vehicles. We also have Twin EMT ambulances and EMT & ECA staffed ambulances and ambulances available for hire with a driver for film productions. All of our ambulance vehicles are tracked, allowing the person on control to dispatch the nearest, most appropriate vehicle.

Rapid response vehicles are used to respond to emergencies throughout an event. They may take additional resources to the scene of an accident, to assist the first aid or ambulance crews. They are tracked, allowing the person on control to dispatch the nearest, most appropriate vehicle. They carry defibrillators, medical gases, drugs kits and other items used in emergency prehospital care.

We can provide offroad vehicles for those areas of that are hard to get to by regular vehicles. This unit will always be supplied with two first aiders. The type of vehicle required will be discussed with yourselves prior to the event and based on our risk assessment.

Some events will benefit from our cycle responder teams. They carry equipment such as defibrillators and other emergency supplies. Many events, state that no motorised vehicles can move during the event. Crowds and limited access may prevent movement even if they are permitted, this is where cycle responders come into their own. These tracked teams can quickly get to the scene of a casualty and provide life-saving skills and equipment when it is needed.
