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.

Motorcyclists consistently feature excessively in the Killed or Seriously Injured (KSI) statistics which are available at end of each year from Road Safety Authority in Ireland and agencies in NI and 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 of attendance by Outreach Rescue Medic Skills (UK), which is valid for 2 years. Over 1500 riders and drivers have taken part on the course to date and many have recertified their skills to remain up to date.

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