First Aid For Riders the safety initiative set up by Right To Ride to provide a tailored First Aid Course for riders of all Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs) is now recommending B.I.K.E.R.S. Training, home of the First Bike on Scene (FBoS) – Emergency Response Skills (ERS) to deliver their courses to riders.
Set up in 2011, B.I.K.E.R.S. Training aims to contribute to the road safety of motorcyclists by providing them with immediate care skills in the event of coming across a road traffic collision, involving another biker.
It is their hope to take away the fear from approaching and dealing with an accident scene, while potentially making a huge difference to the injured person.
The courses are run by Rodge Byrne and Nick Coward of B.I.K.E.R.S. Training, both qualified healthcare professionals and motorcycle enthusiasts, they are acutely aware of the daily risks bikers face on the road.
In the last two years they have trained over 400 riders and motorists across Ireland and the UK.
They are a commercial initiative but are delighted to be working in close partnership with the FBoS UK Ltd, the Police Service of Northern Ireland Bikesafe Team and MAG Ireland – The Irish Motorcyclists’ Association.
In Ireland and Northern Ireland
B.I.K.E.R.S. Training are the only provider of the ‘First Bike on Scene’ (FBoS) Course in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Officially approved by FBoS UK Ltd in the UK, the course is a specifically designed first aid course for bikers, with the aim of providing a wide range of skills and knowledge on how to deal with a road traffic collision.
‘First Bike on Scene’ (FBoS) providers use a sophisticated set of ‘Immediate Lifesupport Skills’, designed to enable motorcyclists or motorists to “Make a Difference”, to an injured person.
The course contents include safe approach and management of an accident scene, mechanism of injury, first aid and cpr, protocols for head and neck (c-spine) injuries, log roll, safe helmet removal, control of bleeding, recognition of catastrophic bleeding, snatch rescue in specific situations, Irish Heart Foundation Adult CPR with Automated External Defibrillator.
The course certificate is valid for 3 years and issued by the ‘Quality Casualty Care Alliance’, UK.
At Right To Ride we believe that a First Aid Course for motorcyclists is beneficial not just for riders but also for other road crash casualties, even if not directly involved in rendering First Aid, but to be able to comfort/reassure conscious casualties and to help in giving confidence to stay calm at a crash scene.
You could be making the difference!
