EMT's

Symons Event Safety offers basic life support with EMTs for low risk events or to help staff your first aid station.  Although basic EMTs are the backbone of any emergency medical services system, additional resources are typically recommended for higher risk events such as motorsports, rodeos, and high risk concerts that include moshing etc.  Our basic EMTs are trained not only to provide great basic first aid but they have automated external defibrillators available and are trained in how best to access the local emergency medical system for the rare instances that something more serious occurs at your event.

PAramedics

Symons Event Safety offers advanced life support with paramedics for higher risk events.  Paramedics complement the basic EMTs at an event and significantly expand the scope of practice available at your event.  Paramedics are allowed to provide advanced emergency airways, give numerous emergency medications, and start intravenous lines.  Paramedic level care or higher is recommended for any high risk events such as motorsports, rodeos, and high risk concerts that include moshing etc.

NUrses

Symons Event Safety offers specially trained emergency nurses that can provide a much broader scope of care than EMT's and/or paramedics.  Nurses, for instance, are able to start intravenous lines and hydrate patients and then discharge them from a first aid station if all their symptoms resolve under a physician's protocols.  Nurses can also provide wound care and give tetanus shots for those venues that are desiring to go above and beyond the minimum insurance requirements for an event in order to provide a higher level of customer service and prevent numerous unnecessary transfers to local hospitals.

Nurses
