"Our paramedics like the Segway PTs because they help them do their jobs more easily and quickly. They like the mobility, the ease of use in crowds, and the ability to travel distances in a short period of time. And the reactions of the public to our Segway PT paramedics are phenomenal." Captain Ray McCahery, Philadelphia Fire Department
