Like the existing 2-wheeler bikes, the new 3-wheeler Fast Response Paramedic bikes will be deployed as the first response vehicles for road traffic accidents and other emergency medical cases. 

One key feature of the new bikes is the ability to stop and park like a car – without the use of the traditional motorcycle stand.

This enables SCDF personnel to deal with the incident as soon as they arrive at the scene and gain quicker access to the patient.

The Fast Response Paramedics will provide initial assessment and critical medical intervention at the scene, while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.

The 3-wheeler bikes, which are equipped with an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) for cardiac cases, have been operational at Central Fire Station and Alexandra Fire Station since 27 September 2010.
