Cyclist Response Team

For over six years, Victoria has been blessed with scores of dedicated volunteers who have founded and evolved Canada's first and likely the planet's first formal Cyclist Response Team. A part of Emergency Management Victoria, the team, largely self-directed, has been training, learning, evolving, and participating in exercises to provide assistance to our first responders in overcoming the challenges of gridlock, transportation infrastructure compromise, fuel shortages, and human resource deficits resulting from  calamitous events such wildfires, floods, tsunamis, contagion, weather emergencies,  terrorism and major seismic events. The team is also available for surge support
