Fast First Responders
The Virtua paramedic bike team is available at community events throughout South Jersey. Like all Virtua paramedics, these first responders are certified and receive thousands of hours of training.
In addition, members of the paramedic bike team receive additional training on bicycle safety, as well as emergency bike response procedures and crowd control.
Each team is equipped to provide basic and advanced life support on-site, including EKGs, IV therapy, airway intubation and medication intervention.
And because they are part of an extensive network of healthcare professionals, they’re never working alone. These specialized paramedics are in constant communication with an emergency department physician and know how to work with the local ambulance and EMTs to quickly transport you to a hospital and ensure you receive a seamless level of care.
Virtua’s Mobile Intensive Care Unit program, which includes the Paramedic Bike Team, is available during community events at no cost.
