Emergency Care Group Orkney

Founded in 1996 as a non-profit organisation, Emergency Care Group provides Medical Cover for any type of event, such as Equestrian, Marathon’s, Cycling events, Concerts, St. Magnus Festival etc. For covering these events we use either a front line ambulance, a 4x4 or a MPV either individually or a mixture of them.
Our group consists of varying skilled members from first-aiders right up to highly skilled members. All training is certified and is undertaken ‘in house’, using various pieces of equipment. Full uniform given (except footwear) and full P.P.E.

Current opportunity

Volunteers required to join a small team of people to provide medical cover at public events such as half marathons, equestrian events, charity events, concerts dances etc. Volunteers will be fully trained in all aspects of first aid and ambulance work by experienced trainers.
