About pro sports ems
PRO SPORTS EMS, LLC. is a group of Phoenix Fire Department Paramedics who in 1992 decided to take their EMS skills from the streets of Phoenix to Professional Sports. Since 1992 our sports paramedic team has designed, managed, and coordinated the emergency medical services for over 1600 professional sporting events. We have had the great privilege of providing emergency medical care for the NBA Finals, Stanley Cup Playoffs, World Championship Boxing, and the BCS National Championship. We are trusted to provide the EMS care for some of the world’s finest athletes, on the world’s largest stage!
People always ask, how this started? One name... Hank Gathers, from Loyola Marymount University.
In 1990, Hank Gathers was a prime time Division One college basketball player who collapsed and died on the basketball court. As paramedics, we have seen tragedies like this happen before. However they had never occured on TV, or involved high profile athletes. The sports paramedic concept emerged from the Hank Gathers tragedy. Since that time, we have been committed to assisting Athletic Trainers (ATC’s) and Team Physicians in providing the very best EMS care for their athletes. From our game time EMS care to our cutting edge Continuing Education / EMS Training programs, we will provide the very best in PRO SPORTS EMS, and help you "Be Your Best!
