Medics On Bikes
Since 1992, Monroe Ambulance's Medics on Bikes program has
provided area residents with rapid response, on-site ALS and/or BLS
care at special events that attract large crowds. Equipped with
first-line medications and a cardiac monitor/defibrillator, our
paramedic and EMT ride in tandem throughout the event site,
providing quality emergency medical care to those in need of
assistance. In the event of an emergency, we can provide Advanced
Life Support or Basic Life Support, stabilizing the patient while
waiting for our transport ambulance crew. When seconds can mean the
difference between life and death, the rapid response of our Medics
on Bikes gives us an advantageous approach to EMS at sites with
limited ambulance access.
Medics on Bikes has also continued our commitment to community
education through staff participation in a local youth bicycle
program, and has provided bicycle helmets to needy children.
