He was informed of all the liability concerns several years back on Blueline. Multiple times, by multiple people.
It's only a matter of time before a lawsuit or criminal charges arise.

Bottomline: Mike, I see that you're trying to help, but you're currently not qualified.

If your best intentions are to help people and learn about medical response, then you should:
1) take a paramedic or nursing course, and get hired by the local EMS, or a reputable private medical event coverage company
2) volunteer with a reputable, insured, and properly trained organization.

If you want information on the latter, send a PM.

Well. This gent is persistent and I think has a genuine interest in what he is doing. He has taken ridicule but keeps coming back.

Tell ya what OP. PM me an email address and we can chat. I can only offer advise based on orgs I've dealt with before.

No Mike, that reply was directed to Floydie (just some good-natured ribbing, perhaps I should have quoted him). I don't doubt that you know Peterborough well.

A few years ago Respond SAR managed to become affiliated with the City of Mississauga (I only remember parts of the conversation, since I was REALLY sick at the time... our liaison with the City poked her head in my car and said "hey, do you guys want some insurance?", and I was like "cough cough, sure"... and the rest is history!)... So any events that we deal with (under the direction of the City of Mississauga), we are covered by their insurance policy! So let's say you want to hold an event on or in City property, you need a permit, you call the City and if the City deems it necessary, they will require you to have a group to provide First Aid and Safety, some times Police too... In this case the City will provide the organizer with Respond's contact information, and we will arrange Members to cover the event. We have had many repeat events as a result, we love it, and the City loves that we're able to provide this service.

Since we have become affiliated with the City of Mississauga, I have put a stop to our weekly "Friday night patrols"... we no longer go out "chasing" accidents and assisting Police with road closures as we did for many many years... It's just too much of a liability now with this City affiliation, we don't want to risk anything bad happening to any of our Members. Sure, if a Member comes upon something, they can stop to assist just as any regular person would... okay, any regular person with a few extra flashing lights, because it's all about making the scene safe, right?

NOT ALL CITIES OFFER SUCH COVERAGE!

Mike has already contacted me asking about insurance and charitable status... I've explained to him that it might not be possible to get the same deal as we have with Mississauga in his City... And I've explained that there's a few hoops to jump through to get charitable status... With that said, IF an organization requests for his group to provide services at their event, then that organization SHOULD have insurance for the event that *should* cover his Members... For example, the Streetsville BIA has used Respond for several years for many events, and we are covered under their policy (this is different from a City of Mississauga event, so the City's insurance does not apply)... Same goes for any events we do outside of Mississauga, we are covered under the event's insurance policy.


As many have mentioned here and in the past (including myself)... It might be better to just bite the bullet and join an existing group that's already well established in the community.

I think that St. John Ambulance might not be the right fit for your guys... how about a SAR group??? Maybe one that's less than an hour away???

Respond SAR has become affiliated with OCEAP in Cobourg as their back up SAR Group... It's worth contacting them and seeing about becoming Members, then if you feel a need to create your own group IN THE FUTURE, you'll have some knowledge under your belt... But I honestly think that if you want to really help out in the community, this might be a great way of doing it... Again, keep in mind that as mentioned above, you might want to consider removing your lighting, that would likely be a condition of becoming a member of OCEAP too.

Here's their Web Site... http://www.oceap.ca/

Check them out, see what you think... and maybe we'll all be Volunteering together in the near future! :thumbsup:
