Fringe Festival First Aid Team


The First Aid Team is there when accidents happen! They are responsible for the safety of all fringers, including patrons, staff, volunteers, and artists. This team operates a treatment room on site and patrols the Fringe grounds. In an emergency, they are the Festival’s first responders and will be required to react to the incident and liaise with emergency personnel. All volunteers on this team must have a minimum of Standard First Aid (SFA) and CPR Level C training. All volunteers (no matter personal experience) will receive additional in-person training to correctly use PPE to safely provide first aid services during the pandemic.
