EVERYONE will find comfort that an emergency cycle response team is going back into operation in Huddersfield after a three month gap.
The voluntary group spends Friday and Saturday nights patrolling the town centre, helping with anything from asthma attacks to cardiac arrests.
The team use pedal power to reach patients before an ambulance can – a vital task when traffic congestion can cause delays.
Bicycles are an ideal way to cut through slow-moving or stationary traffic so that medical treatment can be given quickly before other help arrives.
The cyclists were appreciated, but complex issues meant they were put off the road last year.
We’re glad that wise heads have prevailed and these people are back where they wish to be – doing good.
