First Bike on Scene – Emergency Response Skills

This is a one-day course covering immediate emergency skills for motorbikers and other road users. These skills include:

  • Safe approach and management of an accident scene
  • Airway Management
  • Injury Assessment
  • Management of head and neck (c-spine) injuries
  • Control of Bleeding
  • Recognition of catastrophic Bleeding
  • Safe helmet removal in special circumstances
  • Log Roll
  • Trauma CPR
  • Irish Heart Foundation Adult CPR with Automated External Defibrillator

All too often bikers hear ‘sorry, I just didn’t see you!’ following a near-miss. According to the Road Safety Authority (Road Collision Facts 2009), motorcyclists account for about 2% of road vehicles, but almost 11% of all fatalities. These figures correspond with research by the Department of Transport in the UK.

First on scene? Would you know what to do?

The course starts with some theory but is predominantly practical based. A total of 5 skills are taught, of which 3 will be formally assessed.

Once the learners are comfortable with their newly acquired skills, further practise is given by means of scenarios, combining all of these skills.

Following completion of the assessment, successful participants will be issued with a certificate by the Quality Casualty Care Alliance, UK, which is valid for 2 years. Over four hundred riders and drivers have taken part on the course to date.

We look forward to meeting bikers from all across Ireland and the UK!

There are practical exercises in this course which require participants to be within close proximity to each other (less than the required 2m social distance). We will endeavour to keep these exercises to the shortest possible time frame and to take adequate breaks between exercises. If you have any pre-existing medical condition that prevents you from wearing a face covering or limits you otherwise from participating in these skills scenarios, please contact us directly to discuss your situation. Many thanks.
