Emergency Bikers Support the Open Day

Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) have confirmed that their York based response motorcycle will be attending the ARNY Open Day on 21st May. Visitors will be able to ask what life is like being a Paramedic and riding a motorcycle in England's largest county where literally every second counts. YAS riders are trained in exactly the same advanced riding techniques that are taught to ARNY members so can discuss their experiences of their own training and using their skills for the good of us all. The ARNY open day is on 21st May at Strawberry Fields Cafe on the A19 at Crockey Hill, York and visitors will get a free bacon sandwich with every pre-booked check ride.
