Community Standbys for Special Events
Safety is a concern with any special event. Any time you have a group of people gathered for an event, show, or festival, the odds of a medical emergency increase. EmergyCare is equipped to handle special emergency medical needs and provide EMS medical and rescue Standby services for indoor or outdoor events.
Community Standby Levels
Non-Dedicated Units-No Fee
Non-Dedicated Units include a full crew in an ambulance.
The crew may be called away on an emergency but will try to return if possible.
Dedicated Crews are available at a variety of levels
Paramedic/ no transport
Basic Life Support Crew (EMTs) and Vehicle will remain on-site during the entire event and transport if needed.
Advanced Life Support Crew (Paramedics) and Vehicle will remain on-site during the entire event and transport if needed.
The request should be submitted no later than ONE MONTH before the requested service date.
Commitments will be made based on EmergyCare's geographic service area and staffing availability.
If you need to change the date and/or time of the standby, please provide as much notice as possible. We will do our best to accommodate your request. However, it is less than ONE WEEK's notice we may not be able to honor your request due to staffing.
Please complete the standby form at least ONE MONTH in advance of the date of your event.
