If you enjoy helping people, and are CPR certified, the Playa del Fuego First Aid department needs you to volunteer! First Aid Volunteers (FAVs) function mostly as band-aid distributors, who happen to also be trained in the lively art of CPR.
They are NOT your doctor, and they are NOT here to give you medical advice!
To be a FAV, you must possess a valid CPR certification, and participate in the provided training. First Aid Training is always Friday night of PDF at 6pm at the First Aid Station. If you are unable to attend the scheduled training, email the department lead prior to the event. [email protected]
PLEASE SHOW UP TO YOUR SHIFTS ON TIME AND SOBER! THE SAFETY OF YOUR FELLOW PARTICIPANTS IS RELYING ON YOUR BEING PRESENT (and that's a pun!)
Different First Aid Positions
Name of Position: First Aid Volunteer (FAV)
Requirements: Must have a valid CPR card, and then must have attended First Aid Training (offered Friday night of each burn at 6pm at the First Aid Station).
Description of Job: Working a First Aid shift essentially means doing what you’d normally do at PDF while also being responsible. Half of your shift will be holding down the fort at the First Aid station and the other half will be roving the event. Participate! Relax a bit! Walk About! First Aid is about being visible and available if you are needed, whether that's at the station, or while traveling around the event itself. FAVs must be sober on shift and dressed appropriately to talk to outside authorities at any time while on shift. FAVs must begin and end each 6 hour shift at the First Aid station to pass along and retrieve information from the next/previous shift, and to pick up and retrieve their radio. FAVs get a high visibility vest to wear during their shift.
Name of Position: First Aid Volunteer Shift Lead
Requirements: Minimum credentials equivalent to or greater than Advanced EMT/Paramedic… this includes RN, NP, PA, MD, etc… if you think you qualify, please contact [email protected]
Description of Job: All the description of a FAV still applies here, except that when a FAV needs to consult with a more experienced participant they call you! A FAV Shift Lead is an experienced FAV who can get the help and/or guidance that is appropriate for the situation at hand. Added bonus, they get to wear a cool Shift Lead vest!
