Think you don’t need a bike-mounted mobile field force? Think again. Social media helps spawn crowds — some unruly — and bike officers are uniquely qualified to handle them. And who better than a bike medic to ensure prompt medical attention is rendered if a team member or bystander is injured? Whether you are preparing for political events, parties and raves, or just expecting your team to make it to the championship, this course will prepare you to manage your crowds and ensure prompt patient care in crowd situations. Practical exercises include formations, single- and double-column riding, arrest/rescue techniques, squad withdrawal, and gas mask drills, complete with smoke and noise!
