From staffing to set-up, Special Events Medical Services (SEMS)
prepares EMS personnel to properly plan for and manage medical response
at any type of special event in their community. This concise, highly
interactive continuing education course consists of the SEMS textbook and online course.
Since no two special events are alike; SEMS covers the basic principles to apply when planning for and working at any type of special event, including:
Chapters on specific types of events include weather and outdoor
events, stadium and mega-events, equestrian events and rodeos, and
extreme and combat sports events.
The SEMS online course walks students through
the process of creating an emergency medical response plan and
implementing it during a special event. An access code for the SEMS
online course is printed on the inside front cover of this textbook.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will receive a Course
Completion Certificate from the American Academy of Orthopaedic
Surgeons and 4 hours of CECBEMS continuing education credits.
Providing standby services for special events requires specialized
knowledge and skills beyond initial EMS training. With special events
medical services training, new and seasoned EMS personnel alike can
ensure a timely and appropriate medical response regardless of the
special event size or type.
