As many of you know, I am a member of the National EMS Memorial Bike Ride. This is my 3rd year participating in the ride as either a “wingman” providing support and/or a rider. I am once again looking to you for your financial contribution to help make this ride possible.

During EMS Week (May 18th – 24th) I will be bicycling approximately 500 miles from Rockland, Maine to Philadelphia (Collingdale), Pennsylvania. The bike ride will conclude with a ceremony in Philadelphia to honor our fallen EMS brothers and sisters.

We will pedal through some of our nation’s largest metropolitan areas to some of the most remote rural towns. The Muddy Angels represent every provider in the country and we want them to know we ride for them.

The goal of the bike ride is to recognize EMS as a profession, reduce debilitating injuries and line of duty deaths in EMS and to help institute a national EMS accountability system. It is my hope that these events will focus attention on the accomplishments of all EMS personnel, and educate the community at large about the need for improved safety standards, injury prevention, disability tracking and death benefits for EMS personnel and their families. In January 2013, the Dale Long Act was signed into legislation which remedies coverage gaps in the federal program that provides a crucial safety net for the families of first responders who are killed or permanently disabled in the line of duty. This measure proposed by Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont will extend the PSOB (Public Safety Officer’s Benefit) program to cover private, nonprofit emergency medical services (EMS) volunteers and personnel. This is a huge success for EMS!
