Somewhere between having a good time at a show and a too late 911 call, there needs to be a group that can treat, serve and care for the music-loving, concert attending public. MASH PIT will promote the health and well-being of event patrons and artists by providing accessible, low-stress, high-quality medical care on-site.
MASH PIT is committed to providing services that will enhance the concert going experience and safety of the patrons and artists. The result is happy, healthy, and safe people with fewer injuries or medical issues during and after the event.
MASH PIT's goal is to anticipate and alleviate the potential problems of mass gathering events as they relate to medical problems, resulting in an estimated 75% reduction in liability to the venues. Additionally, MASH PIT will be supporting programs that give back to both the medical community and music education programs.
•We will create a MASH style medical clinic that serves the needs of the venue/event and provides both BLS and ALS care to event patrons and artists in a non-judgmental way, allowing them to feel safe and get the treatment they need •Our service and visibility will provide a positive image of the medical industry to event patrons •Our training will help health care professionals maintain certiﬁcations through partnership programs, allowing them a channel for practice while enjoying a great event for free •We will set up and identify regional teams and grow our volunteer network •We will work towards creating jobs in the communities we serve by establishing regional ofﬁces •We will help our volunteers attain the position in life that they want by providing opportunities for networking in both the medical and musical industries •We will collect statistics of the services we provide in order to publish papers in academic journals, thus creating a standard for event emergency medical care and management •We are a charitable organization and will be donating a portion of our proceeds to medical and musical charities
