University Hospital Emergency Medical Services
EMS Bike Team
The EMS Bike Team was organized in 1994 to assist with deployment of medical resources at large public events, where access by ambulances and emergency vehicles would be inhibited. Bike Team units are commonly deployed at large public festivals, parades, and civic events.
Each EMS Bike Unit is equipped with standard BLS supplies, an sAED, and portable oxygen. Bike Team members are generally paired in groups of two or three and represent the ALS, BLS, and Supervisor components of EMS. All Bike Team members participate annually in physical testing, including an obstacle course and endurance ride.
