EMS Bike Team

 

Ellicott Creek is one of the few fire companies in the Town of Amherst to have a Bike Team.  Our firefighters are certified in maneuvering crowds on a bicycle in emergency situations, as well as how to provide life saving interventions until the ambulance arrives.  The bikes always ride as a pair, as one is equipped with oxygen and suction, while the other bike is equipped with an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and trauma bandages.  The Bike Team is heavily involved in the Ride for Roswell, as well as any events at the University at Buffalo that require EMS.  We are also available to be on patrol anywhere requested.  The team was started in spring of 2012 under Past EMS Capt. Santiago.
