Harley offers (at least a couple years ago they did) leaseing thier bikes to fire departments for a ridiculously low amount. I know Taylor, MI had one. You can imagine the riders in my department were bugging our chief. Darn liability!

You would think downtown areas like New York and Chicago would look into this as a low cost means to get to the scene quicker. They would still have to wait for transport, but at least they could start the medical treatment sooner.

I remembered reading about this happening someplace in Florida, so I looked it up. Here's a link to one story-sorry no pics

I have often wondered why they don't have EMTs on bikes. I would think the response time for some basic life support would be great for high traffic or remote areas.

You could call it F.A.R.T (first alert response team) or not.

Yeah, and if they used a Harley Fat Boy, they could nickname it the "Fart Boy" LOL.

I guess they put the victim in the two saddle bags and then sew him back together at the hospital.

Here in NJ there used to be a hospital that had EMTs on at least 2 BMWs. They were police models R1150Ps loaded with EMT type stuff. I think that BMW may have loaned them the bikes. BMWNA is headquatered here.
