Who we are and what we do:
MSET is a collection of motorcyclist and motorcycle enthusiasts volunteering their time and talents supporting community events, utilizing the unique mobility of motorcycles when appropriate. We are an active motorcycle group delivering Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Emergency Communications. We service both mobile (primary) and fixed base/standby events (secondary).
MSET is a Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) registered First Responder Organization (FRO). Our medical members are state certified and have Medical Direction under Dr. Mark Ackrell and are credentialed medical providers.
MSET communications members are FCC licensed Amateur Radio Operators and have two primary roles. One is to provide net control or dispatch services for our medical operations and event partners. The other is to provide communications support to our partners that are not authorized to operate amateur radio equipment and members who have not yet obtained their FCC amateur radio operator license.
Our motorcycle medical team members are outfitted with onboard oxygen tanks, AEDs, medical and trauma jump bags, pulse oximeters, emergency lights, sirens and amateur radios. With the added motorcycle mobility, reliable two-way radio communications, you have a pretty special team dedicated to making your event run smoothly and safely.
Mobile events with whom we have partnered include, but are not limited to, the following:
- 3M Half Marathon & Relay

- Shoreline Christian Center Concerts

To top off our portfolio, we give back to the community by hosting one of the largest landing zone safety training classes in Texas. Working hand in hand with organizations such as PHI STAT Air Georgetown, STAR Flight, and Shoreline Christian Center, we bring this free training to emergency medical,fire department and law enforcement personnel, first responder teams, nurses, search and rescue teams, search and rescue dogs, amateur radio operators, Boy and girls scouts, and the general public. Participants learn how to be valuable members during a helicopter landing while earning much needed continuing education credits (both TDSHS and TCLEOSE).
We are recognized as a nonprofit organization under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We do not charge for our services but are supported solely by charitable contributions and grants. All donations are tax deductible to the extent provided under U.S. tax law.
And, if you are interested in volunteering your time on any of our events, we would love to have you join us!
