THE AMBULANCE ARENA
Know how and why to activate the Emergency Medical Service for your event.
JUSTIN EBERLY

You may have never noticed the ambulance, nestled between the snack stand and the score-board, at almost every football game or marching competition. I have enjoyed events from many vantage points, including the front bumper of an ambulance. Any large public event, such as a drum corps or marching band show, requires some planning and coordination between event organizers, the facility, and emergency responders.

If you are responsible for organizing an event, be sure to contact your local ambulance service well in advance. To request ambulance standby service, you may find a request form on the ambulance service’s website. If not, contact the ambulance service administrative office using a listed nonemergency phone number. Do not dial the 911 emergency line for standby service requests.
