The MRTSA EMS Bike Team was formed in 2008 to provide optimal coverage for many events to which Medical Rescue Team South deploys. Events such as Fourth of July celebrations, varsity football games, Martha's Run in Mt. Lebanon, the Mt. Lebanon Ultra Party and First Fridays, are attended by large crowds, making response to a patient and accessibility by emergency vehicles challenging. The paramedics and EMT's of the Bike Team are able to respond quickly, with bicycles specially made and equipped for EMS duty. These EMS crews can arrive quickly and provide a faster patient assessment and begin treatment of the patient. The bicycles used by the Team are Fugi mountain bikes. They are equipped with headlights, tail lights, emergency flashers and a siren. The medical gear is carried on the rider's uniform, as well as in specially made bags attached to the bike. Some of this equipment is as follows: Intravenous Fluids Oxygen, Emergency Airways, Bag Valve Mask Resucitator Medtronic Lifepak 500 Automated External Defibrillator Trauma Equipment including wound dressings Medications for cardiac and respiratory emergencies.
All team members have distinctive uniforms consisting of high visibility yellow shirts, and bike shorts and pants, and of course a protective helmet.
