Was wondering if anyone could point me the right direction here. Some of you know I’m a doctor, and I’m heading in the direction of anaesthesia and acute care. Part of gearing myself up for this is to do a course in ATLS (Advanced Trauma Life Support).
I was wondering if I could utilise this as part of trackside medical support teams at race events, especially as I handily live within 45 minutes of Silverstone, both to provide support and get a bit more experience. Does anyone know of whom or which organisations I need to get in touch with to do this?
According to experience, the jobs include: Post Chief, incident officer, experienced marshal (flag & incident), track marshal,spectator marshal, race administration, paddock marshal, pit marshal, startline marshal, telephonist, rescue unit crew, rally stage marshal, rally timekeeper, passage control marshal, sector marshal etc. etc. The list is almost endless. BMMC members include doctors, scrutineers, timekeepers, ambulance drivers, firemen and commentators. In fact BMMC members can and do perform every official job function at all levels of the sport.
The club was responsible for establishing the Emergency Services teams at Silverstone, Donington and Cadwell Park and provides the vast majority of their personnel.
