Pittsburgh Marathon – May 1st and 2nd 2010

Every so often, we have the opportunity to participate with a city in a trial demonstration deploying StreetSmart units during a major event. Such was the case this month when the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation paved the way for StreetSmart to participate with Pittsburgh EMS in covering the Pittsburgh Marathon. Communication to coordinate these types of events is essential, and those involved were exceptional at preparing things for our arrival. Paramedics were chosen by suggested parameters and put through StreetSmart Certified Rider Training. We rode that amazing City of Bridges during the training day and then along the race course on May 1st for the Children’s Marathon and then again for the main event on May 2nd. The StreetSmart LifeLine in the hands of such great paramedics was a welcomed addition to the city’s response plans. Even in the steadily falling rain, the Segway Team was actively responding and attending to the needs of the public. Thank you SCA Foundation and Pittsburgh EMS for the wonderful and very successful experience!
