Event Coordinator Information

Dear Event Coordinator,

Thank you for selecting San Luis Ambulance to provide stand-by service for your event. In order to avoid any questions regarding our service during your event, we would like to take this opportunity to explain our policies regarding injury response. We appreciate your help in sharing this information with all members of your group or event.

  • To facilitate the most efficient emergency medical service for your event, it is important that the ambulance is placed where there is a clear entry and exit way available at all times. The paramedic and emergency medical technician staff will remain with the ambulance during the event.

  • If an injury occurs that is life threatening, your on-duty staff will transport the patient to the closest medical facility. In this case, your event will be without stand-by service until such time as the on-duty crew is released from the hospital and returns to your event, or until an additional crew is available to provide fill-in coverage.
  • You may request a Non-Committed Ambulance Service (check box on form). There is no charge for this service, but this means that an ambulance will be provided at your event when available. A Non-Committed Ambulance may be called away for other emergencies at any time. This option has limited availability.
  • In addition, please be aware that the stand-by staff is not equipped to provide a first-aid station. Our patient treatment protocols do not allow ambulance staff members to dispense aspirin or other medications to the general public. Neither are they equipped or authorized to hand out cold packs, sun block, or other first aid items.

In the event of an injury requiring medical response, we would request that your announcer read the following to event participants :

San Luis Ambulance injury care guidelines prohibit a running response by staff. Paramedics and EMTs are required to carry sensitive medical equipment and a running response by personnel could result in an injury to personnel and/or damage to life-saving medical equipment. Either of these events would result in their inability to provide treatment in the most efficient manner. SLA staff is instructed to respond to the patient as expediently as possible without jeopardizing their ability to provide care and without jeopardizing the emergency medical equipment that they carry.

I have read and understand these guidelines:
