Biker Down is a free, 3-hour course aimed at motorcyclists but is open to anyone who would like to attend.
The training comprises of three modules:
Module 1 – Incident Scene Management: managing the scene until help arrives, risk assessment and appropriate actions.
Module 2 – Casualty Care: how to treat the typical trauma and mechanism of injury found at the scene of a motorcycle related incident, including major bleeds and basic life support, managing spinal injuries, helmet removal and CPR.
Module 3 – The Science of Being Seen which is delivered by staff from the UpRight team who try to give some insight into why motorcyclists sometimes aren’t seen on the road and more importantly what we can do to combat this. They also talk about some advanced riding techniques that can put motorcyclists in a better position to see and be seen.
Bikerdown Derbyshire is organised and delivered by staff from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service who are assisted by members of the UpRight Derbyshire team.
