About this event

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 incident, the first person on the scene will be a fellow biker.

Biker Down is a free awareness-raising course for bikers, created by Kent Fire and Rescue Service, and consists of 3 modules:

Incident scene management

A presentation about on-scene management and personal safety for bikers discovering a crash involving a fellow biker.

Casualty care

Instructors from the FireBike team with motorcycle first aid specific expertise cover trauma and mechanism of injury, including snatch rescues, basic life support, CPR, managing spinal injuries and crash helmet removal.

The science of being seen

Instruction and advice from the FireBike team on being conspicuous. As well as discussing phenomena such as motion camouflage and looming, including tips on what you can do to be seen, without the need to cover yourself in luminous yellow.

We offer this course to all bikers, of all standards and experience.
