“I have worked with Meagan and her team of medics for many years now, they are very professional and set friendly. They are the only team I recommend to Production when asked who I want on set for stunt sequences.”

Moe Rai

Producer/Production Manager

"More than 4 years ago I switched vendors and started using Project First Aid. The moment I met and started dealing with Meagan Aarts is the moment that I felt relieved and that I am in safe hands. Meagan is great in establishing a professional relationship, in being involved with the project from A to Z, superbe in communication on all levels, transparent with her needs to give us the best result, and always takes front seat response to any challenges or problems. I have used her services for all medical needs for film projects that ranges from recruiting set medics to advising on health and safety protocols".
