First Care Medical has the experience and expertise to plan and provide medical support at high risk and large events.
Our role starts at the planning stage when one of our experienced consultants will meet with event managers and other emergency service contacts. We will liaise with state ambulance services and hospitals to ensure your event meets standards. First Care Medical provides medical services as per Emergency Management Australia’s “Safe & Healthy Mass Gatherings – A Health & Safety Planning Manual for Public Events”.
FCM are able to provide and co-ordinate all required medical staff, ranging from First Responders, Medics, Nurses, Paramedics and Doctors, as well as trained communications officers if your event is utilising an Event Operations Centre.
For larger events, First Care Medical are able to liaise with both volunteer first aid organisations to ensure an adequate level of medical services specific to your event.
FCM can provide all the necessary equipment for your event, ranging from first response kits to a fully equipped field medical centre, including intensive care resuscitation facilities.
FCM are also able to provide both stretcher carrying and first intervention vehicles for use within your event, however we are not a licenced ambulance service and therefore do not transport patients to hospital or other medical facilities. As FCM do not provide ambulance transport services, we may contract the statuatory ambulance service to provide a standby crew for rapid transport to definitive care should the need arise.
FCM has a long and proven record of providing medical services to large events across Australia. As a result of this, we have a proven record of reducing ambulance responses and transports to hospital by the use of professional healthcare staff at major and high risk events. This approach has reduced the impact of public events on local public health services.
After your event we are happy to attend a debrief and will provide a detailed post event report showing information related to patient presentations and trends. This process often helps event managers identify health & safety issues for future events.
