Bikers course can help to save a life

Evesham Editorial 28th Mar, 2019   0

BIKERS from Evesham and the wider West Mercia area are invited to attend a free ‘Biker Down’ course over the coming months, offering potentially life-saving skills.

Three courses are available, at Malvern on Friday, April 12, Evesham on Saturday, May 18, and Bromsgrove on Friday, June 21. Each one will be from 10am to 1.30pm.

Designed for motorcyclists of all ages and abilities, Biker Down is a free course which offers bikers essential first-aid training and advice on what to do should they find themselves first at the scene of a collision where a motorcyclist is injured, as well as learning practical skills to help avoid being involved in a collision.

The course is made up of three modules: Collision scene management; basic first aid and casualty care (including CPR and helmet removal) and ‘The science of being seen’ – advice on visibility and positioning.

Each course is limited to 15 to 20 riders and places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

All courses are at local fire stations and are being run by Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service.

Places must be booked in advance. To book a place email [email protected] with your name, email address, contact number, preferred course date / time or call 01905 331323 if you have any queries.
