About Us


Mel Gimblett began in 1996 with one tool-box full of medical supplies and himself providing on-field medical services for minor sports, high school football and other athletics. The demand for event medical services grew so rapidly that within 2 years, Mel had expanded the service delivery to include 35 additional service providers, three Ambulance type vehicles and all the associated medical supplies.

In 1998, Mel added medical oversight through the addition of a Medical Director and incorporated the additional interventions provided by Local Paramedic Services into the Event Medical Scope of Services.

By 2000, the scope of service had expanded to the inclusion of Advance Care Paramedic Skills and Physicians to address the ever-growing need for on-site emergency medical interventions at various venues and facilities throughout Southern Ontario and the GTA.

The growth of the Company, Event Medical Staff Inc, continued until it was sold to another provider in 2017. Mel remained active as a consultant within the industry. Mel has returned to the industry to provide a high quality, certified service with the recently established Event Medical Resources in January 2020.

Currently, Event Medical Resources is providing a wide range of services throughout Southern Ontario and the Greater Toronto / Hamilton Area.
