WPSA  Trauma Care Emergency Services 

WPSA CONTINUES WITH TRAUMA CARE EMERGENCY SERVICES FOR ’08 SEASON

(White Bear Lake, MN - 01/03/08) - After a highly professional and successful alliance with Trauma Care Emergency Services during the 2007 PowerSports ATV Tour, the WPSA announced today that they will continue to provide all of the riders, visitors and staff attending each of their 2008 venues with what they consider the ultimate in motorsports medical personnel by retaining the services of Georgia based (TCES) Trauma Care Emergency Services.

"TCES is a professional, special event medical service and motorsports safety provider that we feel sets the EMS standards for today’s ATV racing community. Our goal, along with TCES, is to ensure the well being of each and everyone on site during one of our events. TCES provides us with the assurance that we are doing everything we can to promote safety and provide our racers, families, friends and fans with nothing less than state of the art emergency services," Kent Lungstroum, spokesman for the WPSA, said.

Trauma Care Emergency Services will travel from their home base in Georgia to each and every event on the 2008 PowerSports ATV Tour schedule. This consistent familiarity with the operations of the WPSA and national ATV racing events and venues ensures the availability of EMS services unsurpassed by any other ATV promotional group operating in the United States today.

In a statement regarding Trauma Care Emergency Services, Lewis McClain said, "My partner and co-owner, Joshua Wheelis, and I, are pleased that the WPSA understands the importance of professional EMS services at each of their events. As a company specializing in power sports events, we plan with the local EMS and Fire agencies before we show up at a venue, not out of necessity, but as an expression of professional courtesy. By doing this we are able to set up positive working relationships and communication networks with local services which allow us to offer a co-operative meshing of these local services with our TCES services resulting in state of the art emergency care."

McClain went on to explain some of the details of TCES. "We maintain medical teams at each race that are able to assess, triage and treat any injury we may encounter and still have personnel available for other injuries that occur. Our personnel will not set foot on a race track unless they have been trained and personally approved by myself and Joshua. This maintains a very stringent level of professionalism and situational awareness that benefits everyone attending a WPSA event."

"Our Medcart along with our Track Response Teams are outfitted with the same equipment that is normally carried by an ambulance, plus some that is specifically tailored for power sports racing in order to handle any type of emergency which could possibly arise. We provide our Track Response Teams with specialized equipment and training to aid them in doing their job safer, faster and more efficiently. We insure that our teams are all trained to work safely on ATV tracks where most ambulance staff is not. Our teams have over 10 years of experience working with power sports events so we believe we have the perfect setup for any venue of any size visited by the WPSA’s PowerSports ATV Tour."

In addition to providing the services of Trauma Care Emergency Services, the WPSA provides Participant Accident coverage for ATV participants. This coverage offers $3000 for Accidental Death and Dismemberment along with $3000 Accidental Excess Medical Expenses which covers any out of pocket expenses that a participant may have that their primary health coverage does not cover.
