An EMT Speaks Out On HARD Summer’s Medical Treatment

As reported by the LA Times, 3 people have died after attending Hard Summer in Fontana this year.

All three people were rushed from the venue to local emergency rooms over the weekend; two deaths occurred on Saturday and one on Sunday.

Temperatures near the venue reached 92 degrees on Saturday and Sunday.

On Reddit, one of the EMTs that worked at EDC shared his thoughts on the medical at Hard Summer and the event in general. He writes:

All medics and EMTs carried a jump bag with supplies, and drugs. For instance, a drug called Versed can stop seizures (something that I saw quite often this weekend). NONE of the staff walking around had any drug boxes on them, as told to me by one of the medics who assessed a friend of mine. Also, at EDC we had 3 medical tents: Main medical, right medical, and left medical. Each place, had IV supplies, TONS of bags of fluid for us to give IVs and drugs, and other necessities. I would have people walk in to me, I would give them an IV, they feel better, and walk out and go enjoy the show. HARD ONLY had supplies at main medical, making the other medical tents virtually useless.

I usually don't bitch about things like this, but I've never seen worse planning than this, and it frustrates me, especially since a lot of these heat related illnesses and sicknesses could have been avoided.

Others decided to chime in by saying that the med tents were completely useless.
