Formed in 2013, the Centertown Fire Department Bike Team is supported totally by donations and sponsorships from various individuals, organizations, and businesses, with no burden being assigned to the Department's operating budget. Staffed by trained individuals who volunteer for the duty, the Bike Team is designed for situations like area patrols, special event coverage, and search & rescue.
Bike Team Members ride modified Schwinn dual-suspension mountain bikes, complete with fire department markings and visual & audial warning equipment. Members may also ride their personal bikes at the discretion of the team's command staff. Each deployment consists of at least two members on bikes, who carry various specialized medical & rescue equipment including a defibrillator, IV supplies, emergency drugs, assessment tools, and bandaging & immobilization supplies.
The highly mobile nature of bicycles makes them ideally suited to the mission of the Centertown Fire Department during deployments. Research shows that bicycles provide unparalleled speed of response during events & high crowd density situations for the purpose of rendering medical care and the escort of emergency vehicles. Bikes are also a great public education tool for children of the community, and provide a real asset during search & rescue activities like area searches for lost children. While primarily responsible for events & responses within our jurisdiction, the bike team can be utilized by other agencies through mutual aid requests.
