Code Blue event personnel are front-line healthcare professionals with extensive experience in pre-hospital and event medical care. They are all registered with the appropriate professional body (PHECC, Medical Council, An Bord Altranais) and carry the appropriate level of professional indemnity and malpractice insurance.
