Bicycle Medics

Daytona Beach Fire Department Bicycle Team
The Program
During large-scale special events, access may be difficult for emergency vehicles due to delays caused by congested traffic, physical barriers or a mass of pedestrians. The Daytona Beach Fire Department has implemented an EMS bicycle team. Large public gatherings such as parades, marathons, fireworks and other special events demand a medical presence, and an EMS bicycle team provides quick access to the sick and injured.

This team of trained personnel ride in pairs with at least a paramedic and EMT who are properly trained, equipped and proficient in the safe use and care of the fire department bicycles.
