Service Overview

This service mitigates risks associated with hosting of sporting events, such as baseball games and marathons, and outside concerts, firework displays, and other forms of public entertainment. EAJ organizes and administers first-aid and medical assistance on-site. The service begins with a thorough survey of the venue, during which primary and alternate routing to nearby medical facilities is identified and charted. Incident-response protocols specific to the event are written up in a manual that is carried and memorized by all members of the response team to insure that if injuries do occur, they are dealt with speedily and effectively. After the event, we deliver a detailed report covering any incidents to the event organizers and use our analyses of the incidents to inform and improve our preparations for the same event the following year. First-aid coverage extends to both event participants/performers and spectators/audiences.


Feature 1Dispatch of Medical Aid Professionals

EAJ medical aid attendants have participated in domestic and overseas disaster relief missions and have accumulated many hours of rescue and evacuation experience under a variety of circumstances and conditions. Their professionalism ensures your protection.

Feature 2Fast and Efficient Response through Remote Monitoring and Supervision

Placement and movement of medical aid attendants is systemically monitored and supervised from our remote control center; this way, when an accident does occur, the attendant closest to the scene can be mobilized. The same system also retains information regarding medical facilities in the vicinity of the event, so that attendants caring for patients can be directed to the closest and most appropriate facility by the fastest route.

Feature 3Assistance and Support for Foreign Participants

Increases in the numbers of foreign participants in Japanese events is a trend that is expected to continue; EAJ has multilingual capabilities and long experience in assisting and caring for foreign nationals. We also have expertise in international medical transports, should an injured patient wish to be returned to his or her home country.
