It’s World Bicycle Day, so what better time to pay tribute to the bicycle and the role it has played at some of the events we’ve attended to provide first aid services.
St John Ambulance ACT’s Bicycle Emergency Response Team (aka BERT) are elite trained First Responders who can provide a rapid response at marathons, fun runs, festivals and other events that cover a large area.
Where vehicle access is also limited due to significant crowding, we can deploy teams of two responders who are fully equipped with first aid kits and life-saving equipment. Our bicycle teams can safely and effectively reduce response times to incidents, cover larger distances and ensure that patients quickly receive the highest standard of initial care.
We are looking forward to being back in the community, and to see people enjoying themselves at events again.
