Factors used to determine whether/how coverage will be offered may include: event crowd size (1500+), risk factors for participating population, EMS access to venue (area traffic impedance), FIRE/EMS availability and event impact on 9‐1‐1 operations.
EMS coverage is intended for individual patient evaluation, treatment and/or transport to an emergency department. It is not intended for, and it is beyond the scope of EMS to provide “first aid station” type services, for example: pain medicine for headaches, multiple ice packs or elastic bandages, other medical supply hand‐outs, bottled water, etc.

Payment for services are due one business day prior to the start of the scheduled event. Payments can be made at the City of Victoria Finance Department Office.
