Bike Teams

 EMS Bike Team

 

Our EMS Bike Team is an extremely valuable asset to us during large scale events. These are constantly mobile and maneuverable assets that enable quick response to emergencies during large scale events where lots of people are present. This allows for our EMTs to begin treating the patient while one of our Ambulances makes their way through the crowds. They are often times deployed during graduation, concerts, races, and parades.
