Our Paramedical team will be stationed at a designated accessible point on site and in the event of a mass casualty incident the appointed Paramedical Co-ordinator will identify a safe area for patient evacuation and staging.
Records and details of every patient treated at the venue will be recorded in our patient register and a report form detailing the paramedic’s assessment and treatment administered will be sent with patients requiring transportation to a medical facility.
In the event that a patient should require transportation to a hospital, the on-site medical team will stabilize the patient and call in assistance from one of the EMS providers as listed.
As an exception and only for critical patients, will the dedicated ambulance/s be used to transport these patients to hospital. A replacement ambulance will be assigned to the event whilst the event dedicated ambulance is off-site.
Our HPCSA registered Advanced Life Support, Intermediate Life Support or Basic Life Support crews, once tasked to carry out Paramedical Services at your event the team will:
- Carry out a detailed risk profile of your event and formulate an event specific risk assessment of the event.
- Compile a medical operations plan and based on the risk assessment detail the number and level of personnel required to adequately cover your event from the build, event and strike phases.
- They will identify and inform the hospitals in close proximity of the event venue and identify proximity and availability of EMS providers.
- They will compile a staff matrix detailing staff attendance hours of operation together with a detailed list of medical equipment to be on the site.
The above ensures a medically managed event thus giving peace of mind to all participants working on or attending the event.
