Seattle Fire Department/Medic One has used EMS bicycles for about ten years now. Operating in pairs, they carry full Advanced Life Support capabilities including defibrillator, IV/cardiac drugs, airway management and wound care equipment, about 25 lbs on each bike.

Bikes serve large public gatherings where access for motor vehicles is problematic, including all Mariner and Seahawk games, Seafair and Bumbershoot festivals, the Seattle Marathon, fireworks shows and public gatherings (WTO).

The bikes are rather generic aluminum mountain bikes with LX kit. Double leg kickstands, Ortlieb bags, and a specially designed rack for the defibrillator. Functional if not elegant, the bikes are a great ice breaker with kids and the public in general.
