Event First Aid

Highlands First Aid provides First Aid coverage at events.

What kind of Medical team do I need for my event?

Event organisers quite often tell us they have a nurse, or someone who has a First Aid Certificate, that can provide First Aid services for their event, without realising the risk implications.

If your nurse works in an aged care facility, or a cancer ward, they are still classified as a nurse, but they may have little, to no experience in the assessment, treating, stabalisation, and decision making processes, that are inherently important in the pre-hospital medical care field.

Highlands First Aid can provide Paramedics, and First Responders, all with extensive hands on experience in pre-hospital care. All our team has worked at events as diverse as low risk school fetes, through to high-risk rodeos, karate championships, rugby tournaments, livestock events, and large crowd events, where instant decisions may save lives.

Through our partnership with My Emergency Doctor, we can if needed, live stream an Emergency Department Doctor at any event we cover.

We provide event first aid in Sydney, Canberra, Wollongong and the Illawarra, plus the Southern Highlands. However please free to contact us to discuss options for other regions as well.

Customer Feedback

Kiaran,

We have received very high praise for your efforts on the day, both via email and anecdotally from those people who were assisted by you and from others who were appreciative of your efforts.

I think that the presentation of your staff goes a long way to ensuring confidence in the public at events such as ours.

The professionalism, dedication, skill, and ease to get along with that you and your staff display is refreshing and very much welcomed by the Bundanoon Highland Gathering Committee.
