Having a qualified medical technician on a busy film set is an important aspect of the film making process. Even is stunts or hazardous work is not involved, the potential for illness or injury is still there. Most mishaps occur during the normal routine of the day. If the production is running late, in a remote or extreme location the likelihood of injury can increase dramatically.

STUNT SUPPORT STANDBY AMBULANCE SERVICE
When major stunts are part of the script, medical support is of the upmost importance. Cinema Safety & Marine Services, Inc. has the most comprehensive first aid kit in the business, bar none. We carry everything necessary to deal with any contingency be it medical or trauma.
We can also arrange for an ALS (Advanced Life Support) transport ambulance to be standing by if necessary. Working with local ambulance companies that provide this service, we take care of all details.
Every so often it’s necessary to bring out the big guns. When the scene calls for a vehicle roll over or crash, we will have to get the driver out in a hurry. Sometimes in order to do this we will need to utilize special equipment. CINEMA SAFETY & MARINE SERVICES carries all the right tools and equipment, and has the proper personnel trained in it’s use.
EXTREME LOCATION SUPPORT
Many productions shoot in areas other than the stage or backlot. These locations can often be far from medical support. There are certain locales that are particular to shooting car commercials or aerials, such as the desert where temperatures can reach 115 degrees in the summer to below freezing in wintertime.
CINEMA SAFETY & MARINE SERVICES can provide whatever is necessary to keep your crew healthy and safe in these difficult areas.
When production is shooting in an area that may contain snakes or other animals native to the area that may cause potential harm, it is necessary to scout the area in question ahead of time in order to spot and possible relocate these critters to another area.
We have a number of trained personnel capable of handling these animals and safely get them and the production crew out of harms way.
