BLS vs. ALS vs. Reality Medic
When we say "medic" we mean either an EMT or Paramedic. Here is the breakdown:
BLS = Basic Life Support
- ie. EMT
- No advanced medications
- No IV's
- No advanced procedures
- No MD required*
ALS = Advanced Life Support
- ie. Paramedic
- Can give some advanced medications
- Can give IV's
- Advanced airway management and oxygen
- Doctor required
- 24/7 direct phone number to our MD
Reality Medic = Our Specialty ALS Division
Typically Critical Care, Combat or Flight Paramedics.
- All the ALS plus:
- Broader supply list to treat all ailments and emergencies
- Wider range of advanced medicines
- More advanced medical and diagnostic equipment
- Your on-site Emergency Room ideal for remote or international locations
All set and event medics work under BLS guidelines regardless of their certification.
Upgrading to ALS is an additional service we offer. This requires an additional fee, equipment, medicines and doctor notification. So be sure to give as much time as possible when booking.
Lifeguards and Water Rescue
We provide both lifeguards and water rescue personnel.
Lifeguards are primarily a "reach and rescue" skill. They see a struggling swimmer and are capable of reaching them and rescuing them.
Water Rescue is the same but may have additional tools and training to "reach and rescue" your patient in the water.
We have many medics who are also water rescue certified.
Please contact us to help you determine which is appropriate and required by your production insurance requirements.
Depending on your production and location we have a variety of highly trained individuals familiar with their area.
This may include local medics well versed in swamp environments or armed, bear certified medics in Alaska. We have provided both!
