BIKER DOWN - Road Safety For Bikers

We want to reduce motorcycle casualties on the roads in Warwickshire.

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service (WFRS) goes to hundreds of road crashes involving motorcycles and scooters every year. Riders will have been trapped, seriously injured or killed.

Biker Down! Training Course

As bikers tend to ride in groups or pairs, it is usually the case that when one is involved in an accident the first person on the scene will be a fellow biker.

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.


Biker Down! is a FREE course for bikers, including three modules:

1: Incident scene management

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

2: Casualty care

This module is delivered by qualified life support instructors 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.

3: 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!

Our aim is to offer this course to all bikers.
