Special Ops

In recent years, Plainfield Rescue Squad has begun to investigate other services that it could provide, in addition to traditional Emergency Medical Services. This page will highlight some of our current iniatives to provide increased services to the citizens of Plainfield.

Bike Rescue Team

The bike team is a new entity at PRS, making it's debute in time for the year 2000 4th of July parade. The bike team performs mobile first aid at public events as well as, in the future, specialized rescue functions like Search and Rescue. Members of the bike team all must undergo a physical examination, as well as specialized training in bike safety and operations. Although preference is given to EMT's, any member of PRS is eligible to apply to the program.

 
Currently, the bike team is composed of 6 members.  The bike team has been activated at the 4th of July Parade, during the National Night Out, and has even given bike safety classes at neighboring schools.  Based on the success of the bike team, the squad is looking to expand the current team to approximately 10 members.
