Med Event 911 Instant Response Saves Stunt Cyclist

MedEvent911 Medical Team provided medical care within seconds of professional stunt cyclist Josh Holt’s horrific crash during Cinco de Mayo celebration in Phoenix, AZ. Hospital personnel indicate that the instant response likely saved his life.
May 7, 2010 - PRLog -- Phoenix’s annual Cinco de Mayo celebration, hosted by 12 News, provides thousands of Arizona families with free entertainment, food, and exciting performances by professional skaters, cyclists and sports figures.  MedEvent911, a Phoenix area emergency response provider, is contracted to be first responder for the kinds of routine injuries a crowd numbering in the tens of thousands might encounter: sprains and falls, allergy attacks, blowing dust, and health-related heart and breathing emergencies.  

During a performance on Sunday, May 2, 2010, Stunt Cyclist Josh Holt sustained life-threatening chest injuries during landing, including multiple fractures of the ribs and vertebra, and a punctured lung. MedEvent911 staff responded within seconds, stabilizing the patient who was transported to St Joseph’s Hospital Trauma Center within minutes by Phoenix Fire Department.  Trauma Center personnel credit the quick response of both units with saving the life of the patient.

MedEvent 911 staff members, trained and licensed Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians  with Fire Department and Hospital experience, set up fully-equipped mobile response centers at the event locations they serve.  “Whether it is the Milwaukee Brewers Game, or a mega-event like the Cinco De Mayo celebration”, says CEO Dee McCluskey, “MedEvent911 professionals provide the highest level response and treatment protocols within seconds when a medical emergency occurs.  On location medical response teams safeguard the public and are part of the full range of service offered by seasoned event organizers like Arvizu Advertising and Promotions. Because our crew all has Fire Department experience, the liaison with Fire and Emergency transport crews s seamless, saving precious seconds when they count the most.”

MedEvents911 provides full service emergency medical support for a broad range of public events in the greater Phoenix, AZ area, including Gilbert, Casa Grande, Chandler, Glendale, Mesa, Peoria, Scottsdale and Surprise, AZ.  Increasingly, municipalities are forming public-private partnerships with organizations like MedEvent911 to support their public events as they avoid paying overtime to their public safety employees whose schedules are often tight due to budget restraints.  For more information about MedEvent911 on location medical services, go to, or call: 877-810-6760 for a consultation.
