Whew! Someone else with similar terminology. I no longer feel
like Oliver Twist. We call your "Chase Vehicles" "Rovers." Each
Rover patrols the area between two SAGs; hence the tactical call
sign might be "Rover1-2" for the ham going between SAG 1 and SAG
2. The duties of the Rovers is the same as what you describe for
your Chase Vehicles.
We do not call 911 unless it elevates to an emergency (needing
immediate medical attention). For intermediate injuries, the
person is transported to a SAG where there is usually an EMT and
then if necessary transferred to a EMS vehicle for transport to a
We have hams and APRS trackers in the CAP vans. Those vans
provide transport back to the race headquarters.

The term SAG seems to mean different concepts
in different places. The rides for which I assist in
communications SAG is a fixed location providing refreshment,
Andy Gumps, rest and noise (band entertainment). Vehicles
supporting the ride are Chase Vehicles and have limited
facilities; water, first aid kit, tubes, pump and transport
downed riders to SAG stops for bus transport. 911 is called for
injuries requiring more than a simple bandage.
Different strokes for different folks.
