As such, from 2019, any new Stage Medical volunteers will be required to hold a health care professional qualification (Nurse, Paramedic or Doctor). Emergency Medical Technicians, Emergency Ambulance Crew or Emergency Care Assistants will also be considered due to the nature of their usual role.The team’s main role includes:

  • Working from a medical tent at the side of the stage, to treat patients from the crowd

  • Providing a range of initial medical treatment as required

  • Observing the crowd from the stage pit area to identify casualties and to assist security with safely transferring those to the medical tent

  • Liaising with personnel in medical communications to maintain patient flow and transport casualties to the main medical centre, if appropriate

  • Responding to dynamic situations, including high risk performances, multiple casualties, high acuity patients, unplanned acts or even critical incidents

FMS Stage Medical Team volunteers could be deployed in a variety of roles during events, which include:

  • Patrolling the event site, responding to calls for assistance via the FMS communications team and members of the public (this is the team’s primary role at events)

  • Volunteering to work alongside members of the FMS First Responder Team

  • Assisting at the primary medical area, minor injury units or site walk in centre’s
