“We were very impressed with how smoothly and easily our teams learned to use the CommandWear system. We have used consumer tracking and dispatch technology in the past and recognize the value – CommandWear provides a mission critical level of reliability and usability that is industry-leading…”

Providing medical services to a temporary city of transient visitors looking to have an epic experience requires significant planning and preparation. With temperatures reaching nearly 40°C/104°F in the Pemberton Valley, the possibility of heat stroke and numerous other serious or life threatening health-related emergencies is very real. The thousands of campers living on the site, moving over 100 acres of unfamiliar territory, and celebrating twenty four hours per day, presents a challenge for the medical and emergency care provider.
