We hope to work with current and new event coordinators in how to use our team, resources, and guidance as they plan events in the future.
Event Medical Services
We provide all the necessary equipment for the event, per our consultations with clients, and ensure that our staff is set up for success with all the support they need to ensure proper compliance and consistency.
More than just providers
Our EMT’s and Paramedics are all seasoned firefighters, ambulance, or trauma technicians that are very experienced in EMS. Our additional education and training give them more advanced treatment capabilities.
Experienced providers make the difference

Events in the great outdoors
Some of our most exciting events take place in venues, state parks, and remote areas that most people would never expect. Non-Fixed sites are some of the most challenging activities that we face in the industry. A majority of non-fixed venues take place in locations that are away from a majority of the services provided to fixed venues. MedStar can plan and execute a medical plan designed for your non-traditional site.
MedStar’s team has worked in some of the most remote locations where local public safety agencies may be more than an hour response time away. Our goal is to provide the highest level of care possible in a non-fixed setting while limiting the number of ambulance transports out of your venue. MedStar meets with venue management and public safety agencies to develop, implement, and execute a safety response plan that covers your event and venue from beginning to end. MedStar has a solution for any location you plan and can customize to our capabilities and resources to fit your needs best.
Our on-site team will always have the ability to immediately contact and consult with medical direction and our medical director. We are appropriately licensed and insured to ensure your event is properly covered.

Our experience makes the difference
We started with experienced providers. We continue with specialized training.
All of our providers specialize in patient care designed for special events. They have years of field experience, but here they learn the unique situations that occur during the various types of events, common injuries, and special care to provide. Seldom does an ambulance company or fire department train for this specialty care critical for this. Below are just some of the training we provide.
- EMTs with IV/fluid rehydration care
- EMTs to provide breathing treatments
- Concussion Assessment and SCAT protocols
- Wound Care and ER level wound treatment
With our Training Institute (MSTI) our internal training can provide these necessary levels of specialized education.
Concerts and Festivals
Millions of people in the USA attended concerts ranging in size from large to small community-based events. MedStar EMS has a solution for every type of concert venue out there. Concerts often take place in set locations and large non-fixed venues, often with minimal resources in place before the event taking place. MedStar specializes in setting up an EMS system in all types of environments and locations.
MedStar Solutions will meet with venue management, concert producers, and other public safety agencies before the event to perform a pre-show walkthrough, develop a response and safety plan specific to that venue and production. MedStar will also coordinate with all of the local public safety agencies to make sure that your event is covered 100% from beginning to end.
Our MedStar Solutions team can provide your event with as little as a single EMT team, paramedic ALS level teams, tents or mobile care facilities, response vehicles or med carts, and even on-site physician oversight. By providing the many levels of options, MedStar strives to limit the number of ambulance transports from your event.

Our most recent challenge was providng all medical services for the first ever 250-mile endurance run in Arizona. This event began in the North Phoenix area, going into Prescott, Cottonwood, Sedona, and ending up running throughout Flagstaff.

Our medical teams perform concussion screening for our sports players and also provides education to many of the governing boards of these organizations.
Our providers give SCAT screenings for head impact-related injuries to best assess potential harm. Our standard has set a new precedence in some youth organizations resulting in our providers, making the call in pulling participants from play.
