IPMBA has developed training to better equip EMS personnel with the knowledge and skills needed to operate in the mass gatherings safely and efficiently. I believe IPMBA is onto something and has taken some great steps to improve delivery of services to the public. I’m reminded of something one of my martial arts instructors always says, “if you only have a hammer in your tool box then you will approach every problem with a hammer”. While I still hold that in most event settings use of carts (Gators) is still the preferred method but I can see that bikes can have a role. Events that come to mind are road races, parades, processions, and Walk-A-Thons.
