Biker Down….

Biker down

Ever thought what you would do if your mate had an accident whilst you were out riding? 

Ever been at the scene of an accident and felt like you could, or should have done more to help? 

Have you ever wondered why despite wearing a fluorescent jacket, cars keep pulling out in front of you at junctions and roundabouts? 

County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service are offering you the chance to attend 'BIKER DOWN'.  This FREE course will show you what to do should you be first on scene at a vehicle accident and how you could help yourself stay safe and assist any casualties involved.  It will also explain the science behind 'being seen' when you are on your bike.

The course runs over 2 nights  -  the 5th and 12th September from 6.30pm to 9.00pm and you must be able to attend both nights.  It will be held at Durham Fire and Rescue Station, Framwellgate Moor.  You don't need any prior knowledge, you just need to be a motorcycle rider.  The course is very relaxed and informal and there is loads of space to park your bikes safely on the night.  Tea and coffee will be provided.

Please send an e-mail to :
stating your name, age and a contact telephone number if you would like to come along, or ring 0191 3324222 and leave your details. 

Numbers are limited so don't delay! 

More detailed course instructions will be given to successful applicants.
Look forward to seeing you.  Cheers,

Andrew Allison, Community Safety
Manager, County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service
