Emergency Medical Services

When you need medical staff on foot, bike, mobile, or staffing an aid station, MARS can provide an array of service options to meet the unique requirements of your event.

MARS specializes in raves, concerts, night clubs, corporate events, street fairs, special events, and temporary mass gatherings. Regardless if your event is only a couple of hundred guests or 75,000 participants dancing in the streets, MARS can scale its operations to meet your needs.

We specially select our staff based on professional experience, current clinical knowledge, compassion, and the ability to easily communicate with a diverse range of people and communities.

VIP Medical Services

MARS offers the EMS equivalent to executive protection. Do you have talent with special medical concerns or needs? Are you planning a formal event with an at-risk participant who might need medical attention? Our VIP teams can dress and act the part to fade appropriately into the background until needed. Regardless if our VIP teams are in tuxedoes or in low-profile street-wear for discretion, the medical care your VIPs will receive will be the best we have to offer.

Physician Services

MARS is excited to also offer physician level medical care to staff events where there is a high risk for serious injury or illness. This is a very valuable service if there is a specific concern for the well-being of a known at-risk population or specific medical concerns. Additionally our physicians carry a small quantity of pharmaceuticals to cover many common diagnoses (flu, bronchitis, food poisoning, severe headache, etc.). Enough to provide a day or two of medication until a complete prescription can be filled, providing immediate relief and freeing your participants, staff, or talent from having to go to the ER or leave the event site for a non-emergency or medical problem that might interfere with your production or event.

4x4 Small Rescue Unit, equipped with backboard mounting system, scene lights, secure storage, fire extinguishers, and emergency lights

4x4 Small Rescue Unit

Based on the Kawasaki Mule platform, this small resource can go where no ambulance can. Nimble in crowds, tight quarters, or off-road camping areas, this vehicle is perfect for extrication of a patient to an ambulance at the edge of the event site, or to courtesy transport patients to the medical station for treatment.

Advanced Life Support Ambulance

High-risk or very large events (10,000 or more participants) usually require an Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance as part of the on-site emergency resources. When your event needs such resources MARS, as part of its regular services, can handle all the details with the ambulance provider, freeing you from dealing with vendor management, planning, billing, and operations. More importantly for the safety of your event and your participants this also ensures that MARS and the on-site ambulance(s) are operationally integrated in case a significant emergency happens. See our FAQ for more information about the difference between MARS and an ambulance company.
