Two police officers from Switzerland visited Cypress Creek EMS today (January 19) to find about our Bike Team and the international Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA). CCEMS Special Operations Director Wren Nealy is currently the elected president of IPMBA. Nealy and Brian Gillman showed officers Sarah Nyffeler and Debi Studer our bike team event trailer and UTV ambulance. Gillman is a member of the CCEMS Bike Team and an IPMBA instructor.
Officer Studer is a bike officer in Basel, Switzerland and she also competes in extreme sports bike competitions. Studer demonstrated some of her bike skills.
Studer and Nyfferler are here on vacation here to get skydiving certifications. While here they decided to ride the Cypress Creek Trails on bikes. They stopped to help a cyclist who was injured and then talked to CCEMS Supervisor Joe Kiff on the scene where they learned of the CCEMS Bike Team and IPMBA. Kiff who is a member of the bike team put them in touch with Wren Nealy and Brian Gillman who gave them a tour.
