Just an idea. Please chime in.

It is that time again. We are all getting on our bikes more and we have seen some of our kin go down. Many times requiring emergency services to come and help out. I have been watching the meet up threads and they seem to be hit or miss.

I was thinking that having a meet up for a cause most of us can back would get a great turnout and be fun. I would like to propose a meetup to thank the fire and ambulance members that we hope not to see, but are grateful when they do.

This could build better understanding with them and the community, and help the idea some seem to have that we are a bunch of hooligans. I feel that many could get behind such an event. It also seems that we have a very broad group of members here. This could help in gathering of donations and promotions to build up the event.

This was just an idea I wanted to kick around and hope others will chime in and maybe help make something out of it.

Thank you all for taking the time to read.

I like the idea but I'm unsure how it would be done. How would you get fire and ambulance folks to come to it? or would you wanna have it at, like a fire station?
Flesh out your idea a little more. ..

How about having one of them put on a basic first aid demonstration. People with you on a ride are really the first responders.

You would have to choose a city. houston fire or etc? Then propose the idea to them. If you do choose houston. I think they might have a few stations that are a bit slower compared to their main ones. Or choose an off city. But it wont be centrally located. Im with Pearland FD. Im sure they would be glad to do something like this. But its down in the dirty south.

You'd probably have to do one for each county we ride in which is quite a few

We do this in ASR. A few of our members are medics/EMT/Firemen/LEO's. We put together a presentation, and did our first one last Oct, our next is sched'd 5/31. The feedback from the first one was very positive. The information is invaluable. Ours includes scene safety, basic first aid, how to best assist the certified first responders (LEO's/EMS), including the needed info to help the 911 operators give as much info to those that are dispatched.

I know MH has multiple members that are Fire/EMS/LEO's. I recommend contacting them first. My bet is they'd be up for doing this type of presentation. (George and Cullen immediately come to mind, but I'm sure there are more.)

Sounds good. Thank you all for the input so far.

I like the idea of a fire station, but maybe a parking lot near one or even a park. I was thinking of maybe seeing if any food businesses would like to donate food. Maybe ask Target and Wal-Mart to donate drinks and stuff out of their "community funds". Maybe organize a bike wash to gather donations for the local stations and maybe games for them to compete for the donations.

I do like the idea of a "first responder training".

Again, just trying to get some ideas of what our community thinks of this kind of meet. I have a lot of appreciation of how these people help our kin at our worst times.

Fire stations are easy. as long as we dont get in their way, they should let us do our own things, having tables and chairs, games set up. Bike wash would be cool, we can ask them to use the trucks to hose the bikes down

First responder training would be the best, its easy to cover and its the most important during an incident. That would require a lot of prepping from them. Getting the equipment ready to train however many bikers going out. But it shouldnt be hard cause some of us are already trained.
