TRAVELING PRODUCTIONS FAQ'S
How does it work?
Contact us about your production. Once we have your production schedule we will arrange a local medic for each location.
You are assigned one phone number and email that way you will have one number/email that will forward to whoever your medic on duty is.
No need to change or update your call sheet with new information each location we handle all that from our dispatch center.
The ideal situation is to send one of our fully stocked EMS Pelican Cases with your traveling team. That way you have one consistent kit for all locations.
Sometimes that is not possible. No worries, most of our medics have their own BLS kits and we provide a suggested list of supplies and over-the-counter medications.
Regardless of your situation, we will make sure a medical kit accompanies the medic.
Can you provide a medic to travel with us?
Often, having one medic to travel with you is the best, ideal situation for your production.
We have countless medics nationwide that are able to join your on-the-road crew.
Who are some of your past "Traveling" clients?
Ride With Norman Reedus
We provided local medics in each location. Each medic would travel with the crew over the various days while on-the-road. We also provided a specially outfitted medical kit hedged toward the kind of injuries or illnesses the cast and crew might face on-the-road.
Fastest Car & Proving Grounds
Another few productions that film in multiple locations nationwide. We provide Set-Medics, Fire Rescue crews and Ambulances.
The Fitness Company
Since 2015 we have provided local medics to each of their locations year-round. It's a short private event lasting only a few hours but we save the client countless hours trying to find a medic in each of their locations, negotiating a deal and billing.
Cal Ripken Foundation
Another traveling event that takes advantage of our extensive database to provide medics to all their event locations.
Just to name a few...
