“You take the blue pill – the story ends … You take the red pill and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”
We carry both pills in our medical kits.
We are a collection of like-minded EMT, Paramedics and other “EMS Professionals” (Emergency Medical Service) who love to serve.
Our service is designed to provide producers of TV, Film and Events with a turn-key medical service at the same cost of a standard set or event medic.
But we provide much more than just the medics. We also provide the medical equipment and supplies; the necessary insurance and medical director; And we have the infrastructure to deliver!
In addition, our goal is to do provide a qualified medic in close proximity to your next filming location; no matter where your location is. Although this can not be guaranteed, we have had great success with many traveling productions and events providing just that.
Other times the right medic is as close as your closest major city. (See the map below for an estimation of current resources.)
When it comes to our highly specialized advanced medics. This class of medic usually needs transportation and lodging. So book early!
HOW IT WORKS
When a producer requests an EMS professional we search our vast database. Our database was built from the ground up to find the closest and best qualified medic for your location.
We provide everything you need!
- The Medical Professional/s
- Insurance: Medical Malpractice and Liability Insurance
- Necessary Kits
- Advance Life Support
- Medical Control
- Even Ambulances and other rescue apparatus
Once the medics are secured we provide you with the contact information.
We pay the medics and invoice your production company with copies of the medic’s daily reports.
ABOUT OUR MEDICS
We use the term medic in the film industry for simplicity but the correct terms are EMT and Paramedic.
Each “Medic” has, at a minimum, their EMT certificate. Lifeguards, security and other non-medical personnel are certified as required for the production or event.
Every medic in our database personally joined our service. Most currently work in the EMS system. We have personnel in every major city and countless small towns across America. With more joining daily.
Each medic has earned their EMT, Paramedic or higher certification in their state or National Registry. This includes several months or years of education, countless hours of clinical rotations, background checks and ultimately state and/or national approval.
Our medics come from every social political background, military and public sectors, every lifestyle, race, religion and gender; Under one banner, the National Set Medic banner.
Meet The Management Team
National Set Medics has contracted with so many talented medics that it is impossible to list them all here. These include EMT’s and critical care medics, Fire Chiefs and doctors. However, there are a few key people deserving of recognition. National Set Medics would like to highlight their exceptional talents and dedication over the years to help build National Set Medics into the powerhouse it is today.
Dan Schlund, is a paramedic, Moto-Rescue™ Coordinator, SAG Stuntman, Licensed Pyrotechnician and retired Jet Pack pilot.
Dan received his California EMT certification in 1991 and worked on an ambulance in the Los Angeles basin running inter-facility and 911 emergency calls for several years, then transitioned to a Set Medic before entering a career as a stuntman.
After 25 years of stunts which brought him to 33 countries on all 7 continents Dan went back to his medical roots in 2012 as a Paramedic and compiled a team of professional and highly qualified individuals from all walks of life to build National Set Medics to what it is today!
