Why choose Category 5 Emergency Care?
Category 5 Emergency Care is the premier provider of Emergency Pre-Hospital Care at public events and festivals throughout North Queensland. Category 5 staff consist of some of the most highly trained Emergency Pre – Hospital Staff including Emergency Nurses, Paramedics and Medics/First Responders. While others may offer event medic services at a cheaper price, we ask that you please do your research and ensure your events are being provided by staff with the experience to manage medical emergencies. Many ‘medics’ have little more than a 3-4 day Advanced First Aid certificate and little to no actual experience in managing medical emergencies, particularly in remote areas.
Our staff are resourced with the latest equipment and monitors, communications equipment, life-saving drugs / medications (including pain relief) and intravenous fluid therapies as well as patient retrieval and advanced spinal immobilisation equipment.
Category 5 consist of a multidiscipline team of Doctors, Emergency Department Nurses, Paramedics and First Responders many of which are major event specialists who have not just developed and lead medical teams for events like Brisbane Ekka, Mount Isa Rodeo, GBR Marathon but state disaster response teams like Cyclone Larry and Yasi. It is because of this wide range of Nationally Qualified Emergency Pre- hospital care professionals, that we can offer you such high level of care at a competitive price.
We can also offer scenario based training for your own first aid officers to ensure they are ready to respond to any foreseeable emergency.
