In 1995, Jill Field, RN, decided to give back to the community that had given so much to her. A transplant from England, she started Pro-Action, Inc. to provide immunization to migrant workers. This was an all volunteer effort in 1995. Today, Pro-Action, Inc. is a vital healthcare resource for immunizations serving those who do not have a traditional medical home or are otherwise unable to obtain timely immunization. We operate three brick-&-mortar clinics housing half a dozen immunization outreach teams that canvass West Texas and Southern New Mexico. For over 25 years, Immunize El Paso has worked in partnership with the El Paso Department of Public Health, the Texas Department of State Health Services, various health advocacy groups & area school districts by coordinating immunization projects throughout the borderland.
ProAction is the region’s longest-standing event medical response team, providing first aid & event EMS for over 27 years. We are a registered EMS First Responder Organization licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services and the New Mexico Department of Health.
Specializing in event & venue medical management, our special event medics are expertly trained to mitigate all types of incidents, small and large. ProAction’s first responder teams have expert training in incident, risk, & emergency management, stop-the-bleed, mass casualty incidents, disaster response, and other specialty fields.
Each of our medics are highly trained in pre-hospital care specializing in event medical support. The level of expertise provided by our organization and affiliated employees assures you of a safe and smooth event eliminating the need for additional worries over the safety of your attendees and event participants.
We can provide a state-of-the-art Mobile Medical Command Center, roving crews utilizing golf carts and ATVs, bicycle teams, fully equipped chase vehiclesEvent Medical Standby including tent and UTV / ATV with emergency response capabilities, as well as recovery stations & tents.
Regardless of the size, scale, crowd, or type of event – our emergency response team can assist. We also employ medics for athletic events, including NCAA Division I collegiate football and basketball, sanctioned MMA & boxing matches, MiLB AAA baseball, Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) hockey, and USATF sanctioned marathons and races.
ProAction Emergency Services Institute is an official STOP THE BLEED educational licensee. In the wake of violence in places where people should feel safe, such as schools, churches, and other venues, we are acting decisively to increase access to the skills necessary to save a life. We believe that presenting Stop the Bleed training to high school students is the best way we can make a difference.
We proudly offer free bleeding control classes to El Paso and Las Cruces area non-profit organizations. Students learn different techniques such as how to use a tourniquet, gauze or apply pressure to keep a gunshot wound victim from bleeding out before emergency crews arrive.
We envision a healthy and prepared community where everyone has access to health services and medical education opportunities.
MISSION STATEMENT: To improve lives by providing immunization and other prevention-based care, allied health and first responder education, and Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
