Our team of Basic Life Support Medics provide thousands of hours of first aid every year to a variety f events including sporting fixtures, school events and community functions.
All of these medics are trained comprehensively in advanced first aid resuscitation, automatic defibrillation & spinal injury. Several of our medics are also trained in the administration of basic pain relief including Methoxyflurane (the green whistle).
Most of our Basic Life Support medics are undergraduate paramedic students and are required to undertake monthly training with the Ambulance Service to keep their skills current.
At major events where there are more than thirty medics deployed, the team are supported by a Duty Manager and Operations Supervisors who provide oversight of everything that happens at the event.
