FIRST AID

A Message From the Estrella War Chirurgeons In Charge

On behalf of the Their Royal Majesties of Atenveldt you to Estrella War!!   Our greatest desire is that you have a safe and enjoyable experience while you enjoy the hospitality of the Kingdom of Atenveldt.  Unfortunately, unexpected medical issues arise, and the chirurgeonate (First Aid Tent) and war staff have gone to great lengths to ensure that appropriate medical care, if needed, is available.

**For medical emergencies, contact any member of the war stafffor immediate assistance.**

Chirurgeon Point Services and Hours of Operation

First and foremost, we need to stress that the Chirurgeon Point is here to serve your first aid needs.  We are able to offer first aid as necessary, but are limited to basic first aid care only.  Services that we are able to provide are:

Basic bandaging (Bandaids and Ace Wraps)

Ice Packs for Injuries

Basic Dehydration Management

Charging Station for Medical Equipment during operational hours

Directions to outside medical services

Coordination with On-Site and Off-Site Emergency Medical Personnel

**We are not permitted to dispense any medications; if you require medication we will gladly arrange for EMS treatment and/or direct you to the closest pharmacy for assistance**

The Chirurgeon Point will be open from 8AM-8PM every day. We will also have an on-call chirurgeon available for after-hours needs.  Watch Point is able to contact the on-call Chirurgeon for immediate assistance after-hours.If you are unable to get to Watch Point, or need assistance after 8PM, contact any member of the war staff, and they will coordinate contact with a chirurgeon on-call.  If you have a radio available, you may also call over the Chirurgeon channel directly for assistance.

Medical Emergencies

We always hope that the need for emergency care is not needed, but in an event of this size it is, unfortunately, inevitable. For that reason, we have employed paramedics who will be residing on-site for the duration of the war.  If you have a medical emergency, contact any chirurgeon or war staff member, and they will coordinate the assistance of the site paramedics.

If you wish to transport yourself for emergency care, the closest emergency room is located just 2 miles from the Estrella War Site:

Banner Ironwood Medical Center, 37000 N Gantzel Rd, San Tan Valley, AZ 85140.  There are also several urgent care centers and/or pharmacies within a few minutes drive from the site. More information is available at the Chirurgeon Point.

In the event that an ambulance is needed for a medical emergency, the war staff must assist the emergency personnel to the location of the emergency. This is a logistically complicated task, requiring blocking of traffic on the site, and closing of roads for a short period. Please be patient when this happens and follow all directions by the war staff. We must ensure the safety of all, and your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Things to Consider

This is Arizona. It can get hot, dry, windy and dusty. If you have allergies, we recommend bring your allergy medication with you and taking it as directed. Although this time of year is not usually excessively hot, dehydration is still a concern. Please hydrate adequately.  This is the Valley of the Sun. Please wear sunscreen and/or a hat with a visor when not in a covered area.  Animals: We have scorpions, rattle snakes, coyotes and other such wildlife. Simple rule: If it is not your pet, DON’T TOUCH IT OR FEED IT! In most cases, animals will stay away from the site, but be vigilant and use caution.

 

In Service to the Dream,

Mistress Rowan Bridget Blackmoor
