Small events may simply require cover by a single paramedic. Code Blue paramedics are all PHECC-registered front-line 999 professionals, using a standardised, fully-stocked kit provided by Code Blue. Our paramedics can manage medical, trauma, obstetric and paediatric emergencies on scene and will liaise with voluntary first aid organisations and statutory ambulance services, when necessary. Code Blue paramedics are punctual and professional, clearly-identifiable in custom high-visibility jackets.
Integrated clinical team
Our team of nurses and doctors are highly-experienced in emergency and event care. They integrate seamlessly with the paramedics’ command and control structure providing expert diagnostic opinion and advanced treatment on-site. All staff work in Irish emergency departments and are fully-registered with An Bord Altranais and the Irish Medical Council.
A custom-tailored package
Tom and Neil will meet with promoters, health & safety officers and venue managers to determine the optimum requirements for your event. These decisions will be based on national standards and international best-evidence for event safety and clinical management. We will liaise with HSE Planners, Statutory Ambulance Services, local hospitals and Voluntary First Aid Organisations to ensure and seamless chain of emergency care.
Paramedic Team with Controller
A medium-sized mass gathering may require a team of paramedics stationed at multiple points around the event location. Code Blue paramedics are co-ordinated by an experienced controller who will liaise with event promoters, security, Gardaí and voluntary first aid organisations. Transport off scene is provided by private ambulance service using CEN certified 1789/2000 (Cat B) emergency ambulances (fully equipped) and staffed by two approved PHECC-registered paramedics.

- Resuscitation of seriously injured/collapsed patients
