Graded stunt performer
Action & Emergency is owned and operated by a MEAA Graded stunt performer. Providing a unique insight to potential risks involved with a variety of action sequences. Aiming to identify the potential for harm BEFORE paramedic skills are required.
What To Expect
All patient’s that can be assessed and treated on-set will be suitably managed on location. For instances where patients require urgent transport to hospital, the on-set paramedic will initiate treatment and manage any life-threatening conditions prior to handing-over for transportation to an emergency department.
The paramedic on-location will liaise with the state emergency Ambulance Service to arrange for priority transport, if required. Once hand-over is complete, your paramedic will remain on-set to provide medical coverage throughout the duration of the production – so as not to incur any down time or losses.

Our paramedics are skilled drivers capable of 4wd, motorbike and racetrack driving, perfect for any vehicle chase scenes requiring a medical vehicle to follow behind performers and crew. Crews provided have obtained (at a minimum) their advanced driving certificates and have spent years driving under priority lights and sirens through unpredictable metropolitan traffic. In the unlikely event of a vehicle emergency on set, our crews are highly trained in the extrication of patients from motor vehicle accidents and work well alongside fire crews and other emergency services.
Fire is an element that can be manipulated but not necessarily controlled. We have provided medical standby for HUMAN TORCH training and understand the processes involved to safely perform this stunt:
– Application of fuel and water gels
– Nomex and burn layers / costume
– Flame extinguishing techniques
Having felt first hand what it is to be set on fire for performance, our stand-by paramedic can immediately recognise any potential risks BEFORE they occur.
In the event of an unexpected emergency our officers have the knowledge and experience to manage anything from minor scalds to full thickness and airway burns. We will provide the best available care in the pre-hospital setting in line with current state ambulance practices.
Working at heights
With some of our team coming from an aeromedical background, our crews have years of valuable experience with rescue from heights, including winch operations from helicopters. Their vast paramedical exposure within State Emergency Services ensures reliable, time -tested practices in operating effectively at height, where safety is of utmost importance. Our Specialised Response Units (SRU) are the perfect asset to any stunt team Australia – wide.
