Event EMS Standby Fees

Different organizations hold events during which they are either required to or prefer to have emergency medical staff on-site during the event. KVFR has fulfilled such requests on movie sets and at sporting events such as football games, rodeos, triathlons, and roller derbies.

Fees are charged depending on the personnel and apparatus requested. A minimum of one hour will be charged. Additional hours are charged with the time calculated to the next highest 15 minute increment.

Every effort is made to fulfill BLS requests with non-career staff, but when those resources are not available, the district must cover the cost of having to send career staff members to the event by charging the hourly cost of salaries and benefits for the entire increment of time the career staff is paid for.

The cost of standby services at Central Washington University (CWU) football games is included in the fire protection contract in place with CWU. However, other events at CWU which require EMS standby services may be charged for after review by KVFR staff and the Board of Fire Commissioners.

Fees for special community events where a large percentage of those gathered are citizens of the District are usually and customarily waived at the discretion of the Board of Fire Commissioners. High school sporting events and the Kittitas County Fair are examples of events held by not-for-profit organizations where there are large gatherings of the community. The district feels it is prudent to have emergency response personnel present in the interest of community safety.
