Special Event Ambulance

Rural/Metro is known throughout the Southwest for our ability to coordinate multiple large-scale events where specialized ambulance services are needed.

Our ambulance standby services are provided under contracts with large sporting venues, including Arizona State University and University of Arizona althetics, Arizona Cardinals football, Phoenix Coyotes hockey, Phoenix Suns basketball, NASCAR races at Phoenix International Raceway, marathons, concerts, and other events.  

We also contract for EMS standby services to a variety of one-day or multi-day events, including:

  • State Fairs
  • Concerts
  • Block Parties
  • Marathons
  • Golf Tournaments
  • Cycling Events

In addition to ambulances and personnel fully equipped and certified to respond to any type of medical emergency, in select locations Rural/Metro can provide emergency crews on bicycles for large-scale public events where rapid access to patients can be challenging due to over-crowding.
