Today saw another twelve members of Wiltshire TRF participate in the ICARE* first aid course, which has been specifically tailored for the needs of motorcyclists by South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.

All participants received a certificate with three-year validity for successfully completing the course.

Training was hands-on at all times.

The course covers the skills required to keep an injured motorcyclist alive until first responders arrive to take over, including mechanism of injury, crash helmet removal, basic life support, and scene safety, assessment and management.

The course was paid for using donations received from the organisers of horse events that the Wiltshire group had helped out at earlier in the year, including Nunney International Horse Trials and two Endurance GB rides.

Are you a motorcycling first-aider?  Do you carry a kit with you when you’re out on the trails?

Let us know about it below.

  1. I Always carry a full first aid kit either on the bike or in my bag.

    It Consists of dressings bandages eyewash amongst other things. It’s basically a first aid kit refill pack sealed in its own sterile pack.kept in waterproof zip pack.

    There’s not a lot of point learning first aid if you don’t have the tools to use it. Or if when you need to use it your first aid kit is soaking wet and covered in mud!
