At events, our first aid support covers the entire site of the event. At most times, alongside the medical centre, we have static first aid points, roaming first aiders on bikes and at least one responding ambulance. To co-ordinate this, we have our communications team. They work with shift leaders, the team managers and event co-ordinators to make sure EDSFAT’s resources are where they need to be at the right time. They monitor the team’s radios and mobile phone, which allows leaders at events to directly call the First Aid Team, to request assistance. The communications team is based in our dynamic communications vehicle, which is equipped with various communications systems. The communications team comprises of amateur radio licence holders and in-house trained members.
