RFDS Victoria’s Mobile Event Care team (MEC) has had a busy summer, providing services to a variety of events.

Flying Doctor staff successfully supported the Oktoberfest, Bond Fide music festival, Melbourne Racing Club Spring Racing Carnival, Let’s Go Fest as well as a range of AFLW game

As Mobile Event Care continues to grow, the service is gaining more clientele and increasing its scope to provide a high level of care to patients in need. MEC is fast becoming a serious competitor to other first aid providers and has already tripled its workload over the course of last year.

Events First Aid Coordinator Shawn Cocu says "Mobile Event Care (MEC) has covered a number of events over summer. We pride ourselves on having a ‘can-do attitude."
