The CARS Special Events Medical Management team (SEMM) is a joint venture between CARS and the University of Virginia Healthcare System. Our team carries its bikes & equipment in a 2001 United Trailers 18' trailer. The trailer is designed to carry equipment and act as a base station to support operations and provide a rehab/repair station.
The SEMM operates at mass-gathering events such as Foxfield races, UVA sporting events and marathons. Each bike team consists of two medics and carries an AED, portable oxygen and first aid equipment. The bikes enable each team to respond to calls more quickly and efficiently, thereby reducing response times and increasing service. The average number of calls per home football game is 30-40 and the bikes have made a huge difference in keeping the less mobile medic squads in service.
