The Bike Team plays a special role in providing emergency medical care to the communities within our service area. The Bike Team enhances MEMS response capabilities during special events and major incidents, such as natural disasters or MCI’s (Mass Casualty Incidents). By having the ability to navigate through large crowds, tight areas and traffic congestion to expedite on-scene emergency medical care to patients where access by an ambulance or other means would be delayed or ineffective.
The Bike Team is also responsible for coordinating and conducting educational training for the MEMS’ Helmet Safety Program. This program is a community service program that interacts with school-age children to promote the use of safety helmets while riding bicycles, scooters, skateboards and ATV’s.
