Bear Care Medical
Event Medical Staffing Specialists

Join the Bear Care team!


As a Bear Care volunteer you will have a chance to gain experience in a real world care environment that is hard to come by through conventional channels. At a covered event you will practice field medicine skills that may range from handing out a band-aid, to taping an ankle, to responding to a real-world emergency.

As a provider with us you will be part of a team that is covering gatherings that can number in the thousands. It's where EMS meets field hospital. Not your everyday "stand-by."

If you are currently an active EMS provider, nurse or mental health professional, talk to us. There are opportunities unfolding in a number of operational areas.

If you are not currently any of the above, but are seriously considering a move in that direction, talk to us. We have in-house training programs designed to help you start in the right direction.

$$$ Some paid positions available for certified and qualified professionals. $$$

And Besides, it's really fun.
