ER24’s Special Events Division, backed by operational vehicles and staff, will provide medical assistance on the race route to the 4,500 participants, officials and supporters of the 2017 Maritzburg SPAR Women’s 10/5km Challenge.
Life Healthcare’s team of highly qualified trauma staff will manage the finish medical facility. Life Healthcare is a leading private hospital operator in South Africa. The group’s primary business is acute hospital care and they have an extensive geographic network of diverse facilities, including hospitals across seven of South Africa’s nine provinces and in the country’s most populous metropolitan areas. Life Healthcare’s vision is to be a world class provider of quality care for all.
In the case of a medical emergency please dial 084 124 and advise the ER24 Call Centre staff that you are at the Maritzburg SPAR Women’s 10/5km Challenge.
Be clear with:
– The condition of the patient.
– The exact location (a clear description using raid names, land marks etc will help response time)
– Remain with the patient until medical staff arrive (this will allow the call centre to contact you for additional information)
Please REMAIN CALM – although emergency response vehicles are strategically placed along the route, they may have to drive through a vast sea of competitors. They cannot afford to create additional medical emergencies BUT will get to you as soon as SAFELY possible.
