Pre- and Post Event Logistics
Essential to any team of emergency services providers are teams to help provide the necessary background support. ESD has a robust team of individuals doing just that. Our pre- and post-event logistics team arrives on playa several weeks before the event begins to assist with site surveys, oversee building and shade placements, organize supplies, and generally get things ready for the arrival of our department teams. At the end of the event, they are instrumental in supporting the breakdown and storage process and in helping to restore the playa to its original pristine condition.
Once ESD operations begin, our Event Logistics team supports the department by assisting with meal deliveries, trash and recycling pickup, ice deliveries, and other support-related tasks.
We also have a team solely devoted to transporting our injured and under the weather participants back to their playa homes after being seen and treated at one of our medical stations.
