We only employ experienced and current Emergency Department Nurses, Registered Paramedics, Doctors, EMT's (Medics) and First Responders. Our staff have years of experience in managing real life medical emergencies. 

Experience counts for everything.

When we teach first aid, the instructor up front of the class has the real life experience to draw upon.

When we provide event medic coverage, our staff have the knowledge and equipment to manage an emergency.
