Safety First provides emergency medical standby services to motion picture and television production companies. Studios, sound stages and location sites can be dangerous places but Safety First’s extensive experience in providing emergency medical services on these sites enables us to provide the kind of unique coverage production facilities require. The staff at Safety First is experienced in motion picture and television set procedures. They are experienced in taking direction from television and film production personnel and both understand and respect the additional needs of a large and complex production. Safety First has the experience, the equipment and the expertise to help you meet the unique challenges of your industry.
At Safety First we are ready and able to assist you in coordinating and managing the evolving needs for Set Security for your production.
From your first contact we will begin to assess your needs and determine how we can best meet them. Safety First staff are available for dedicated service to a Production Company for the entire run of a show or daily as needed.
With Safety First on your production site, you have one less thing to worry about.
Our medical staff will come to your location to perform Wellness Screenings and conduct an initial impression during the Primary Survey. This includes a visual and physical assessment. We will form an objective opinion of the individual's general wellbeing. If our medical staff identifies any abnormalities, we will perform a complete patient assessment.
Our Diagnostic Lab Testing division offers saliva, blood and urine lab services as well as crew and cast physicals.
Lights, Camera, Action is being heard again across the country. As production begins again there is a need for a new crew position: The COVID-19 Compliance Officer (CCO).
The CCO does not replace a Set Medic. The position is designed to relieve the Set Medic of many tasks and to prevent the spread of Covid-19 when a Set Medic is not available.
If your shoot is on water and you need a specialized safety expert, we are here for you. From Lifeguards to Rescue Divers we have you covered on land and in the water.
Motion picture and television productions which portray Emergency Medical Personnel in action usually want to “get it right.” That’s where Safety First can help. We provide consultation services to help your performers portray EMS Personnel accurately and with authenticity. We can work with your production crew on set dressings as well. We can also provide you with specially-trained EMTs and Paramedics to act as extras if you don’t want to use your own actors. And we can provide real emergency medical equipment to be used as props and we can show your actors how to use it properly. If your production involves the portrayal of EMS Personnel, “getting it right” is as simple as having Safety First on the set.
