21st November – Biker Down Course
The latest course was run by the Fire Bike team from the Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service at Birstall Fire Station.
This is a great course and one that all of our riders should consider attending. It might be by way of a refresher, or an opportunity to learn new first aid techniques from the professionals. Aimed at and geared towards motorcyclists involved in, or first on scene at incidents involving bikers.
It is a good mix of practical first aid sessions, helmet removal techniques and group chat and instruction around scene management and incident awareness, with plenty of banter too!
At the end of the session you come away with some positive learnings and a very nice goody bag which includes a very well stocked first aid kit and a cracking little torch – very handy for being able to see the numbers, when opening those pesky key safes!!
