FBoS Courses – 2017

New dates for FBoS (First Bike On Scene) courses for 2017 in Ireland.

FBoS tell us what First Bike On Scene is all about.

“So you might be wondering ‘what’s this all about’? Well, this one-day course is aimed at motorcyclists, but is open to any road users. It teaches life / limb saving skills in the event of an accident. Covering aspects such as safe scene management, head- / neck- and spinal injuries as well as helmet removal and others skills relevant to a biker crash. After intense scenario based training, participants complete a skills assessment. Once completed successfully they receive certification.

The Irish Motorcyclist’s Association and the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s BikeSafe Team supported us from the beginning and both remain our most important partners. We also met with the National Ambulance Service’s Medical Director and more recently were invited to join the Bike Buyers Guide for a monthly column.

The Road Safety Authority kindly provided safety booklets and high visibility vests, while the Highways Agency in the UK sent road safety DVD’s, which are given to participants. Principle Insurance set up a discount for bikers who successfully completed FBoS training and give free promotional goods. We attend the yearly Cork and Belfast Motorcycle Shows, the Killarney BikeFest and visit club and dealer events across the country.

Additionally we added the Irish Heart Foundation’s Adult CPR and AED component to the course as well as the Blood Loss component, adhering to the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council and JRCALC protocols.

To date we trained 710 people and over the year’s relationships with bikers, clubs, Blood Bikers, Bike Marshalls, members of the Military Services on both sides of the border, the Institute of Advanced Motorists and many more were developed.”
