He is a qualified Emergency Medical Technician (Associate Ambulance Practitioner - Cert HE) and has spent many hours planning and managing medical teams on large events as well as undertaking patient transfers from hospitals and repatriation work across the United Kingdom and Europe.
Our team of staff include managers and experienced operatives from fire and rescue, search and rescue as well as NHS and Independent ambulance services and we use their wealth of knowledge to ensure your documentation is as up to date and tailored to your business as it can be.
We are able to provide the following services to companies:
Event Emergency Planning - With a team of advisors with years of pre-hospital medicine and medical services experience along with over twenty years as search and rescue team volunteers and officers in charge we bring this knowledge to our customers to help with event emergency medical and rescue planning.
Our emergency planning department can help provide a tailored solution for emergency planning working along set guidelines such as those set out in the Event Safety Guide, by the local Safety and Advisory Groups or as detailed in event insurance or governing bodies. We have worked alongside Safety and Advisory Groups (SAG's) for years while preparing proposals and plans for emergency planning for national and regional cycling events, rugby and soccer tournaments and many International orienteering festivals in recent years.
