Posted By : Lisa-Michelle Kucharz March 16, 2017

Magen David Adom is introducing electric bikes into its array of vehicles in Israel with each bike equipped with resuscitation equipment.

The bikes can be despatched to scenes within a radius of 10 kilometres as first-responders along with standby medics, ambulances, and intensive care vehicles.

In emergency medicine, every second counts. Magen David Adom strives to always improve and cut emergency response times.

Called “Life Riders”, the new unit is composed of MDA volunteers, adults and teenage volunteers alike, who have a drivers’ licence and will be available to MDA as first responders. The teenagers must be at least 17 years old and have a minimum of a two year experience in MDA as well as their parents’ permission to be part of the unit.
