Check out the FAST bikes

Did you know that the Red Cross First Aid Service Team (FAST) has its own bike team?

Yep. It is true. So far, 12 FAST volunteers here in Columbus have received special Bike Response Training.

The FAST bike team has been extremely busy as of late.

The team has worked 3 OSU home football games, the Columbus Marathon, and the big OSU Four-Miler. They have treated numerous patients and been able to provide a quick response at these events.

Pictured above is a FAST bike. Bikes are now equipped with emergency lights and sirens which make them more noticeable and therefor more effective at making FAST even FAST-er!

In case you are not aware, the First Aid Service Team provides first aid and CPR at special events throughout the year. The FAST bikes will allow quicker responses to greater amounts of people at these events.

If FAST sounds like something you would like to get involved with, see what opportunities are available in your community.
