Wake County EMS provides comprehensive support for the numerous large public gatherings that take place in our jurisdiction every year. For each event, a comprehensive assessment is conducted, in cooperation with law enforcement and fire authorities, and an Incident Action Plan is developed. That plan may include on-site EMS units, an EMS incident management team, EMS foot patrols, EMS cyclists, all-terrain vehicles or other resources, as appropriate. The North Carolina State Fair, which brings more than 100,000 people per day to Raleigh for a nine-day period each October, provides an annual opportunity to exercise our full spectrum of special events medical support capabilities.
If you are interested in having a medical standby for an upcoming event, please download the Special Event Application Form or contact:
