Imagine that an athlete at one of your sporting events is injured on the field and they must lie there in pain, waiting, as the audience looks on wondering “why don’t they do something?” It’s a situation which can easily arise if you’re relying on local EMS (Emergency Medical Services) to reach your location. If the local EMS is already attending another call, the wait can be a long one. It is for this reason that many insurance companies will not cover your sporting event unless you have continual ambulance standby. Safety First provides that continual ground transport unit standby, stabilizing the ill or injured patient and, if necessary, calling in regional EMS to transport.
Safety First has held long-term relationship with Flagstaff County and Provost County for community events and other professional and amateur sporting events. For years our specialty has been providing medical services at rodeos, but we have also provided stand-by services to all types of sporting events. Clients who are involved in high risk activities or who appreciate the need for special emergency protection can rely on the standby services offered by Safety First. We never leave you waiting.

Any company that holds large events for employees and customers knows the peace of mind that comes from having uniformed Advanced Care Paramedics (ACPs) and Primary Care Paramedics (PCPs) in attendance. Our presence at your events will send a positive message to everyone involved: You care about the people and take precautions to protect their health and well-being. Should an illness or injury take place, we will have our experienced, qualified first responders on site, ready to handle the situation in a professional and timely manner.
