Do you know what to do if you suddenly witness a horrific motorcycle accident?
While the majority of us know enough to stop and call 911, that’s where our accident assistance knowledge ends. Luckily one group is determined to change that.
Accident Scene Management Inc (ASMI) has created the Road Guardian Program to help motorcyclists and other motorists learn what to do when they come across an accident scene. After all, the first few minutes following an crash are critical to the long-term outcome of the victims.
ASMI is the leading international motorcycle trauma training organization and they teach bystanders and EMTs what to do to prevent injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists after an accident. Unlike other safety courses—this one is crash specific. By administering first aid, medical help, and CPR to victims, bystanders who are trained can enhance the survival rate and reduce severity of injuries for injured motorcyclists.
When you sign up for this unique and one-of-a-kind program, you learn:
· How to access the EMS
· Mechanisms of injury
· How to secure the accident scene
· Safety factors
· Assess and treat injuries
· Injuries associated with motor vehicle trauma
· Preservation of the accident scene
· Insurance needs and technology
· And more
Do you know how to hold spinal immobilization while a full-face helmet is removed? Do you know log rolling techniques to minimize spinal cord injuries? Do you know what is important to preserve at an accident scene?
If you don’t, then you should consider taking one of ASMI’s classes. You can view a list of their scheduled classes to see if one is being offered in your area. Since their inception in 1997, ASMI has taught more than 15,000 motorcyclists across the country.
