Advantages of using a motor unit during large scale events with limited street access

FFMotor

FF/A-EMT Fran Hartnett assigned to MC-1 this morning for the Memorial Day Parade. About 10 minutes into the parade while leading it with the APD Motor unit, MC-1 was called back to the intersection of Auburn St. at the off ramp for I-290 for a medical emergency.
 
 This is one of the main advantages of using a motor unit during large scale events with limited street access. The motor is able to reverse direction and get to an emergency quicker than an Ambulance can navigate the same street. It's about having the right tools to do the job.
 
 MC-1 is the only motorcycle licensed at the Advanced Life Support level as a Class V Ambulance in the state.
