Thunder by the Bay

The Manatee County MRC was activated to support EMS operations at the Thunder by the Bay motorcycle festival at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch, FL. Over the first weekend in January, 7,000 bikes and 25,000 spectators came to the sports park to listen several tribute bands and visit over 100 vendors. Despite the cold conditions, MRC volunteers staffed and operated two medical aid stations and two mobile response units.
