Hamilton Paramedic Service will be better equipped to keep residents safe with a new Paramedic Bike Unit hitting the streets spring 2021. Thanks to a $20,000 grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation of Canada, the Hamilton Paramedic Service can initiate the establishment of a Paramedic Bike Unit in Hamilton.
A Paramedic Bike Unit will provide rapid response in difficult to reach areas of the city, including large community events, as well as in wooded areas along Hamilton’s many trails. Due to their agility, Bike Medics can more quickly access individuals in distress and begin providing emergency care until an emergency vehicle arrives. For more information, please click here.
