What the programme involves

Incident Scene Management

A presentation from the FireBike team, on-scene management and personal safety for a biker happening upon a crash involving a fellow biker.

Casualty Care

This module is delivered by qualified life support instructors from West Midlands Fire Service with motorcycle first aid-specific expertise, covering; trauma and mechanism of injury, snatch rescues, why when and how, basic life support, CPR, managing spinal injuries and crash helmet removal – when and how.

The Science of Being Seen

During this session the attendees receive instruction and advice on conspicuity – how effective is high-vis? This talk also covers phenomena such as ‘motion camouflage’ and ‘looming’, as well as tips on what you can do to be seen without the need to cover yourself head to foot in luminous yellow!

Many clubs and groups discuss the need for the training of riders in how to deal with a crashed biker. Injured motorcyclists need to be dealt with in a specific manner by a first aider due to the type of injuries possibly suffered and the issues of helmet removal. The Biker Down programme can be delivered FREE of charge to anybody who would like the training, but primarily is aimed at motorcyclists.
