Special Event Services
Special Event Services When you organize a large special event or athletic competition, you want to insure that the best care is available in case of a medical emergency. Jackson Community Ambulance is one of the largest providers of special event emergency medical services in the U.S., covering NASCAR auto races, the Big Mitten State Fair, the Faster Horses Festival, Tough Mudder Mud Run and other events held at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn. In addition to standing by at school sports events, we also cover the Junior Achievement Grand Prix, the Jackson County Rose Festival, the Hot Air Jubilee, and more.
As one of our many community services, we offer “pull out” standby event coverage for nonprofit organizations and schools. If the ambulance is not needed elsewhere, it will stay at or near the event.
For more info or to schedule event coverage, please call 517-841-4803
Bike Medic Teams (see also Special Teams)
JCA paramedics serve on bicycle teams to patrol special events at MIS and elsewhere. Medics work in pairs and carry much of the same equipment and medications that they carry on the ambulance (minus the stretcher, of course). Bike medics can quickly maneuver through crowds to get to emergencies quickly. While medics treat the patient, an ambulance is brought closer if transport is needed. They also provide community outreach, answering questions from the public when they are not on a call.
Honor Guard (see also Special Teams)
Our sister company Huron Valley Ambulance has an Honor Guard that represents our organization and our employees at company events, funerals and ceremonial events in the community. Our team was formed after the line-of-duty death of JCA medic Cheryl Kiefer in 2008.
