Remote-area medical centres, ambulances and evacuation helicopters / vessels
The company has extensive knowledge of and experience in using the latest medical and rescue equipment. From the constitution of individual emergency medical packs, equipping of medical centres and ambulances (two and four-wheel drive) to evacuation helicopters/vessels, a complete service is provided.
Medical and paramedical services for corporations, venues, events and individuals
Immediate Assistants has over 15 years of experience in providing services to mining, construction and security companies, government entities, professional sports, and film, TV and event companies across Australia and throughout the world. The company is Australia’s premier provider of expert medical and paramedical services for corporations, venues, events and individuals.
Remote-area medical training courses
We provide nationally accredited training courses in medical services for remote areas. These courses include senior first aid, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), advanced resuscitation, NeckSafe® acute spinal management, defibrillation (AED), EMT, paramedical skills, Epipen (Anaphylaxis) and analgesic gases (Entonox and NO2).
Qualified and credentialed intensive-care paramedics
The majority of mining sites throughout Australia currently meet their medical risk assessment by providing industrial medics or contracted staff from their relevant ambulance authority as their emergency response personnel. Industrial medics are often sourced from current mining staff trained only in first aid or with a six to ten-day certificate course such as EMT or industrial medic, making them nowhere near as qualified as full-time ambulance service personnel, especially those trained
in rescue.
The solution: hire appropriately qualified and credentialed private intensive-care paramedics from Immediate Assistants.
