For on-course medical needs, an ambulance and paramedic will be contracted to provide support services. The ambulance will be stationed on the course during the event. Should an accident occur that requires transportation to the nearest hospital, the ambulance will be used for that purpose and another ambulance will back-fill the departed vehicle. Each group of riders will have a first responder assigned and following in one of the support vehicles. An emergency action plan will be in place to clearly spell out communication and response should any incidents occur.
