Bikers are invited to attend a free Biker Down event this summer.

The 3 hour classroom-based course is being run by Hereford & Worcester Fire & Rescue Service in partnership with West Mercia Police, Institute of Advanced Motorists and Midlands Air Ambulance, all of whom are committed to reducing motorcycle-related collisions on the roads and reducing the severity of injuries sustained.

The Biker Down course offers bikers the chance to benefit from essential first-aid training and advice on what to do should they find themselves first at the scene of a collision where a motorcyclist is injured, as well as learning practical skills to help avoid being involved in a collision. The course is made up of three modules: Collision scene management, Basic first aid and casualty care (including CPR and helmet removal) and ‘The science of being seen’ – advice on visibility and positioning.

Dates for this summer are;
Evesham Fire Station: Friday July 23rd
Bromsgrove Fire Station: Friday August 6th
Peterchurch Fire Station: Friday August 20th

Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and places must be booked in advance. Full details will be provided to course attendees once their place is confirmed.

Biker Down events for Worcester, Kidderminster and Leominster will be taking place later in the year and will be advertised after the summer.To book a place on this course, please email  ref ‘Biker Down’ with your details (name, email address, contact telephone number and preferred date).
