Music Festivals

DANCE & MUSIC FESTIVALS

Colbrow Medics provides event first aid cover and event medical for music events and festivals throughout Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth and Hobart, for 18+ events and all ages events.

All event organisers have a duty of care to ensure the safety and well being of patrons and members of the general public at their events and festivals. This duty extends to the provision of appropriately qualified and trained first aid medics, who are equipped with well stocked and provisioned trauma first aid kits, allowing for an immediate response to any medical emergency. It is now a requirement of most insurance underwriters and insurance companies that music festival organisers guarantee that they will have appropriately qualified first aid responders, first aid officers, registered paramedics and Doctors on site at the event in order to secure the necessary insurance cover.

Event Medical Services include:

  • Event Specific Medical Management and Operations Plan (MMP) including risk assessment
  • Liaison with Ambulance during the planning, event and debrief phases of the event
  • Pre event and event day communication with local health services
  • Attendance at event meetings as required
  • Comprehensive Post Event Medical Debrief Report

Colbrow Medics intends to manage the risks of injury and incidents at dance and music festivals through a combination of static posts and mobile responder teams in collaboration with Ambulance, Security and DanceWize or Save-a-Mate.

Medical Personnel have mobile and retrieval capabilities.  Roving patrols around the event site can be routinely performed; Personnel may also be in static locations throughout the duration of the event as requested by the First Aid Commander.

Low acuity patients who are not in immediate life threatening situations and whose condition is within the scope of practice of the respective medic may receive medical treatment on scene prior to transportation to the Event Medical Centre (if required) for further evaluation and an extended scope medical care approach applied.

High acuity patients in an immediate life-threatening situation will be co-managed on scene with State Ambulance Paramedics.

Colbrow Medics provides first aid cover for music events and festivals throughout Regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne, for 18+ events and all ages events. Even where the event is considered to be high risk, such as where drugs and/or alcohol are likely to be consumed, Colbrow Medics has the necessary experience to ensure that appropriately qualified medics are on hand. Colbrow Medics can help with large and small music festivals alike. For large events we have a mobile first aid station and can also supply bicycles to ensure that our first responders are on the scene as soon as possible. We also have portable 2-way radios that can be utilised to ensure immediate communications between the first aid teams and the base first aid station at large events. We have assisted numerous music event organisers with their first aid requirements, and our staff are appropriately qualified and equipped to ensure compliance with insurance company requirements. We can provide comprehensive risk assessment and analysis to ensure that you do meet your insurer’s requirements. For all types of music festivals, Colbrow Medics has you covered.
