Hiring the right special event medical service leads is essential to the success of your event. By using the wrong company your liability is increased and the safety of your guests is at risk. Before hiring any service ask these questions to ensure that you are receiving a quality service:
“Are you licensed by the Southern Nevada Health District’s Office of Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Systems?”
The Southern Nevada Health District’s Office of Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Systems is the regulatory body for all EMTs, Paramedics, and Ambulances in Clark County. Therefore any service that is hired should be an approved service and all personnel should be licensed by the SNHD OEMSTS.
You will see that Guardian Elite Medical Services leads is a permitted agency with the Southern Nevada Health District’s Office of Emergency Medical Services and Trauma Systems. In addition, Guardian Elite Medical Services is licensed by the State of Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services Office of Emergency Medical Services.
“Do you hold a valid business license where my event is being held?”
Clark County, the City of Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, North Las Vegas, and Mesquite all have their own requirements for special event medical services leads. Therefore any special event medical service leads that you hire should hold a valid business license in the jurisdiction for providing special event medical services leads. This ensures that the company you hire is in compliance with the regulations set forth by the locality. All of the jurisdictions have a business license search locator that you can use to search for your hired special event medical service.
“What events have you done in the past? Can I see a resume? Do you have a list of references?”
Prior event experience is key to ensuring the success of your event. Ask about the types of events the special event medical service leads has worked in the past and whether or not a list of references can be provided.
Guardian Elite Medical Services has provided special event medical coverage to large music festivals of over 30,000 people, conventions of over 100,000 people, sporting events with over 5,000 participants, and motion picture shoots of all kinds. In addition our management team regularly travels to other large events around the country to get experience with large-scale event management and learn best practices from other organizations. A list of specific events and references are available upon request.
“What type of equipment do you use? How often is it checked?”
When hiring a special event medical service leads you are not only hiring personnel, but also you are hiring personnel to bring in their own equipment. This includes automated external defibrillators (AEDs), oxygen tanks, emergency medications, bandaging supplies, etc. AEDs need to be certified on a yearly basis. Emergency medications only have a shelf life of roughly two years. And oxygen tanks need to be hydro tested on a regular basis. Ensuring your special event medical service leads has a preventative maintenance program in place ensures that the equipment is serviced and up to date and able to respond to any medical emergency.
Guardian Elite Medical Services leads follows all manufactures recommended preventative maintenance checks and every employee is required at the start of their shift to inventory their equipment.
Hiring a special event medical service leads for your special event should result in decreased liability and an increased level of safety for your guests, however selecting the wrong service can have the opposite effects. Before hiring any special event medical service be sure to fully evaluate them for their ability to provide the services needed.
