February 4, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • Page 19 Area When Ramsey Ambulance Corps Deputy Chief Michael Migliaccio was a senior at Quinnipiac College, he found a perfectly good bicycle lying in a dumpster. “I brought it home and donated it with my old bike to the corps to establish a bike squad,” Migliaccio recalled. “With donations of helmets, lights, and racks from Cury’s Sport Shop of Ramsey and repair and maintenance from the Allendale Cycle Shop, we were good-to-go.” As interest grew, a fundraiser was held and five brand new bicycles were purchased, outfitted with safety and EMS gear, and placed in service. “The timing of The Flying Bike Patrol becoming operational could not have been better,” explained RAC Life Member Mike Adams, who is also Ramsey’s OEM coordinator. “We were starting our centennial year and had several parades and large-crowd activities planned.” The Fourth of July concert and fireworks drew record crowds and the bike unit moved from one location to another, handling emergencies. Ramsey Day, Memorial Day, and the Centennial Parade required the services of The Flying Bike Patrol, whose members were, by that time, equipped with portable radios. When the Wyckoff Volunteer Ambulance Corps requested the unit for an event in that community, they not only saw the value of the group, but some Wyckoff EMTs suggested they procure their own bikes and work together with the Ramsey Ambulance Corps. “It is good exercise, a lot of fun, and a vital part of our pre-planning for major events in our towns,” commented Sean Matro, an RAC member and a graduate student at Columbia University.
