On your bike! Covering Tour De France 2014.

West Coast Event Medical Services were proud to support St John Ambulance service this month in providing urgent cover to the Tour De France 2014; providing a team of 10 First Aiders, First Responders, Comms and a Medical Manager. We covered major spectator hubs at Pool and Hebden Bridge; with West Coast EMS in command of a major spectator hub in Pool looking after tens of thousands of spectators and local residents. We managed a team of over 15 First Aiders, 3 Ambulance crews, 2 Paramedics, 1 Nurse and 1 Doctor.

This is an example of how we can respond to last minute requests not only nationwide in Scotland, but across the United Kingdom. It’s also an example of how well we can integrate and work alongside many organisations – from voluntary aid societies to private and statutory Ambulance Services.
