Bike Emergency Response Team

IMG 0129We have introduced our newest emergency response team to be utilized during high demand special events throughout the city.  The EMT emergency response bike team completed a 40 hour training course to operate the bicycles in populated and tight quarters.  The bicycles are used for special events in the City of Georgetown. Currently, the fire department has 8 EMT's that have received the additional bicycle response training.
Bikes are equipped with basic medical response gear including oxygen and an AED. Their purpose is for quick response to medical emergencies in large crowds to begin assistance prior to ambulance arrival. They were on duty for the fireworks show in Georgetown on the 4th of July and responded to 3 medical emergencies.
