09/15/11 165 W, 2 I - + 4 - 5 New Bike Trailer For Wake County EMS

Wake County EMS has placed a new bike trailer in service. Stored at Station 1, the 18-foot trailer has a 36-inch RV-style side door, ramp door in the rear, and 6-foot 6-inch interior. Modifications include connection for shore power, interior lighting, and storage cabinets. The shore power is also used for charging the bike lights and hand-held radios. The storage cabinets house medical supplies and bike parts.

The trailer replaced a smaller, single-axle version, which has been retained as a secondary unit. Two bikes and equipment are kept in the older trailer, for days requiring bike teams at multiple events on the same day. The new trailer was placed in service over the weekend of July 4. The modifications and painting were all performed by EMS members. Learn more about the Wake County EMS bike team on this web page. Or see more photos of the trailer.
