- Woodstock Firefighters will now be able to respond
to calls for service quicker on trails thanks to the purchase of 2 Levo HT ‘Electric
Assist’ bicycles; which were purchased from Out
Spokin’ Bicycles by the Woodstock Public Safety Foundation.
These bicycles will assist responders
in reaching patients over difficult terrain quicker and with less physical
stress. While the rider still peddles on
an ‘electric assist’ bicycle, he or she does not exert as much energy when
climbing steep hills. Utilizing these
bicycles will allow the responder more stamina to treat and evacuate the
patient in need of assistance.
“We want to thank the Woodstock Public
Safety Foundation for their commitment to public safety in Woodstock. The purchase of these ‘electric assist’
bicycles will allow us to better serve our citizens and visitors” says Dave
Soumas, Fire Chief. “Out Spokin’ Bicycles has played an
instrumental role in equipping and guiding the success of our bike team. We appreciate their partnership” he added.
Launched in 2011, Woodstock Fire
Department’s Bike Team members complete a 16-hour training course which
consists of bicycle safety, bicycle laws, and bicycle response to
emergencies. The bike team deploys at
larger events as well as on the trails for routine patrols, training, and
responding to calls.
