Implemented in the spring of 2010, the Sedgwick County EMS Bike Medic Team is designed for deployment at various special events. The primary objective of the Bike Medic Team is to provide rapid response through congested areas, allowing paramedics to arrive at the patient's side faster than a traditional ambulance might.
