About the event

Biker Down is the UK Fire and Rescue Services’ response to a safety concern they identified amongst Bikers, namely that as we (Bikers) often ride in company, the first person ‘on scene’ at a Motorcycle accident is often another Biker!

Module One – Incident Scene Management; usually presented by Operationally experienced Firefighters focuses on on how to ensure the safety of responders, the fallen rider and anyone else involved in offering first aid, as well as advice on alerting the emergency services.

Module Two – Casualty care; delivered by qualified Life Support Instructors looks at dealing specifically with motorcycle-related first aid including typical trauma and mechanism of injury to legs, dealing with major bleeds and basic life support, CPR, managing spinal injuries and crash helmet removal.

Module Three – The Thinking Biker, this input looks at the way the brain interprets data sent by the eye so that what’s visible isn’t always seen, examining phenomena such as motion camouflage, saccadic masking and looming, and offers some positive advice on how to make the most of our chances of being seen. It puts the point over quite clearly that hi-vis clothing, day riding lights and retro-reflective materials don’t guarantee we’ll be seen by other road users!

The course is highly interactive with plenty of lively discussion and questions, plus the hands-on experience of the first aid module. At the end of the day, participants receive a certificate of attendance as well as an ‘aide memoire’ to help remember the content of the course, a Medical Data Carrier ‘Crash Card’ for medical details to be carried attached to the Rider’s helmet.
