Event medical services in Quebec: Laws and regulations
In Quebec, sporting, corporate or other events must be covered by first aiders or first responders who are qualified to administer the necessary emergency care in the event of injury or illness. Their intervention is indeed crucial to optimize the victims’ chances of survival.
Events in Quebec: required presence of certified first aiders
Public events, whether corporate, cultural or sporting, bring together a large crowd in one place. To guarantee the safety of all the public as well as the participants, the organizers must then call on accredited first aiders or first responders to provide medical coverage.
All the members of the medical teams present on the scene must have undergone specific training thanks to which they have been able to acquire the skills required to be able to intervene in an emergency in the event of an accident, and therefore provide the victims with the care intended to stabilize their condition before transfer them to a hospital center or allow them to resume their activity.
These first aiders must also perfectly master the handling of medical equipment such as cardiac defibrillator, as well as the use of treatments and medications, in particular their dosage.
