We provide high-quality professional medical care at sports events. With our experienced and well-trained staff, equipment and vehicles, we are your ideal partner in every field.
Our medical team, with many years of service, has been carefully composed by professional medical training and experience from the daily practice of healthcare. This guarantees a team that is capable of an adequate assessment of the health status and treatment of any disturbed health patterns. Furthermore, the team surveys potential risks and disturbances, and observes, monitors and stabilizes the care provider if needed. We work according to protocols and guidelines that align with the national standard of regular ambulance care (National Protocol Ambulance Care 8.1) and Basic Life Support Assistance (Red Cross, Orange Cross and First Aid Network).
The teams, that are composed based on an organization's request, are provided based on years of experience in the kind of competitions in which they are deployed. Many of our volunteers have more than 25 years of experience in the different kind of competitions.
To achieve this goal, much is demanded of our organization. Professionalism, expertise and passion for the profession is a necessity. All of our volunteers possess such quality characteristic and are also trained that way.
Equipment is of great importance for providing optimal care. For example, our fleet of vehicles must comply with all requirements and, of course,must be technically in good condition. Moreover, a good cooperation and consultation with other emergency services are of great importance, such as municipal health services (GGD,GHOR, NOVADIC), ambulance services, dispatchers and hospitals. Prevention is better than cure. Numerous events have shown that our deployment for a good ending has been of great importance.
