Medical Safety

You are here

A motorsport medical team comprises of specially trained doctors, nurses and paramedical staff, and is available to provide immediate medical and extrication facilities at the scene of an incident.

These individuals move around race tracks aboard emergency response vehicles manned by an experienced driver, doctor, or paramedic, and is equipped with portable medical equipment.

The National Fire Protection Association’s NFPA 610: Guide for Emergency and Safety Operations at Motorsports Venues provides race track owners, operators, promoters, first responders, insurers, and sanctioning agencies with comprehensive guidelines for implementing safety and emergency response strategies. These guidelines ensure that emergency workers are properly trained and equipped, and that venue personnel are ready and able to deploy resources to optimize fire suppression, rescue, and medical care for competitors in post-crash situations, while also providing for the safety of first responders.
