If you can ride a motorcycle like somebody’s life depends on it, administer first aid by yourself and watch this video without gasping you might have what it takes to be a motorcycle-riding rescuer.

Finally, a chance to watch a bike rip through traffic without having to feel guilty about endorsing bad behavior!

Putting first responders on two wheels makes a lot of sense; bikes can get through congested traffic and even rough terrain much more quickly and easily than a van-based ambulance.

Blue-lighted bikers like this are in service all over the world, including the United States. But from the sound of the siren it seems like this particular video was caught in Europe. Everything else blurs by too fast to tell!

Obviously a biker paramedic won’t have as many lifesaving tools at their disposal, but in many medical emergencies expediency can be the difference between life and death.

Stay safe out there, and get the heck out of the way when you see these lights behind you.

Hat tip to Jimmy!
