Bradley County Emergency Medical Service has acquired two Trek bicycles from Scott’s Bicycles in Cleveland. These bicycles are set up and designed for emergency first response.
They will be utilized at community events like the Block party and, on occasion, The Greenway. This addition will not only help the community but will promote good health by giving the EMT’s and paramedics the chance to get some exercise, officials said.
Scott’s Bicycles played a role to make the Trek bicycles available. They provided a contribution towards the purchase price. The remaining balance was paid for by donations from individuals and businesses within the community. “We have a long list of contributors that have helped with donations to this project," said Commander Shawn Fairbanks, project organizer.
"They know who they are and we would like to say thank you to all of them.”
