Convention First Aid

This is the side most people know and is our largest arm. Our core service is providing first-aid level medical services for conventions, shows, and events. We have all the equipment and experience to provide advanced first aid response services for conventions/events from 10 to 29,000+ attendees. Our medical staff is trained to a minimum of First Aid/Advanced First Aid and CPR. Many of our members hold certifications of Medical First Responder or higher.

Our First Aid response services include Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), medical grade oxygen equipment and the life-saving opioid overdose medication Naloxone in addition to standard first aid gear. We operate at the Basic to Advanced First Aid level as outlined by the American Red Cross and American Health and Safety Institute.
