Work @ Event Medic PGH
Some event organizers will use volunteers, or pay someone under the table to handle what they may think will be minor medical inconveniences, and assume that Good Samaritan laws will cover any legal issues. Many volunteers are wary about risking their professional licenses and livelihood on that assumption. Concerns also linger of sustaining personal injury while volunteering, because many events will not provide full disclosure about their insurance, and may not have the ability to compensate for lost wages or medical bills if a volunteer is injured.
Event Medic PGH employs licensed professionals who are fully insured, and fully vetted. It is not enough to be a nationally registered EMT or Paramedic. Our crews must demonstrate medical authority and responsibility. We ensure that anyone wearing our badge is expertly trained and experienced in providing acute medical care in the field.
Event Medic PGH is seeking emergency medical responders and technicians on a FLEX/CASUAL basis to staff sports games and private events.
As an employee of Event Medic PGH, your job is to act as the first line of emergency response in the event of a medical complaint or traumatic injury, and to act as the professional liaison between event organizers and emergency services.
Requirements: ONE (1) year minimum experience with a 911-based EMS service or qualifying volunteer fire department, rescue squad, or QRS service.
All applicants must provide current applicable PA DOH certification, current AHA CPR certification, and provide current Act 151 (child abuse) and Act 34 (criminal history). Applicants may also be subject to drug and alcohol testing prior to and/or during employment.
