Biker Down
#1
Did one of these yesterday, took about 3.5 hours and covers accident scene management, general road craft and observations/ Hazard Awareness and basic first aid (including the when to and how to of helmet removal). Good afternoon in good company, even if half of them seemed be from a Manchester HOG

Ours was delivered by a mix of volunteers from the Fire Brigade, ex-cops and an ex-Army medic at the all new Fire Station/ Safety Central building at Lymm (opposite the Services), for bikers, by bikers

Can't remember their names, but they were all slightly "off-kilter" so doesn't really matter, is Keith the medic guy ?, box of frogs eaten by a bag of badgers, he was saying about the degrees of injury and those you die from straight away, his first example was "if your head comes off" which he described as "sub-optimal", there were a couple of women instructors, we got one called Hazel, not entirely of this planet Big Grin

All good stuff though and we got to play with the toy defibrillators, etc

Definitely Kev, not really enough time to cover everything fully, but enough so you can maybe keep someone alive till the blue lights get there

Keith’s the tall gangly guy with glasses tends to tell bad jokes and holds his hands together when talking

Deffo worth it, it’s free they supply buiscuits and brews, big of humour and a good insight into the basics. You can buy a natty 1st aid kit too for £5 monies go 100% to the air ambulance as the kits were sponsored by some solicitor firm
