FPOS- First Person on the scene of an Accident

We all know of someone close who has been involved in an accident.

We also know that if the scene had been managed better, the losses could have been less.

The BMWMCC is holding a workshop for all bike riders, car drivers and their family and friends.

Any one of us may be faced at any time with coming across an accident.

Whether while commuting or while driving in the rural areas.

You do not have to be a trained first responder to make a real and significant difference.

This workshop teaches you vital skills in controlling the scene and in ensuring no one gets hurt any further.

You can be a major role player while waiting for the emergency services to arrive.

 

 

Arrive early to have some coffee and meet the team, register, and get settled.

  A BMW Motor Cycle Club Cape numbered certificate is awarded for this training.

 

 

____________________________________________________

Nothing is more stressful than arriving at an accident scene and not knowing what to do, in which order, who to call, how to make that call count, what to say.......... all while a person or persons are lying injured..

This is not a first aid course!

This is a workshop on what not to do and what to do should you be at an accident scene.

 

This workshop will equip you with the knowledge and essential skills to enable you to function effectively on the scene and make a valuable contribution to the situation outcomes.

There is so much YOU can do to secure the scene,

secure the patients and NOT cause further injury while giving 'assistance' -  

even if you have no first respondent training.

Rendering First Aid is only a part to incident management.

You have a very valuable role where seconds count.

With no first aid knowledge you can influence the patients outcome in a very definite, positive way by following simple steps and doing the first things right first time.

Turn your empathy and good intentions into positive incident managing action that will help both the patient and the qualified respondents far more than you will ever know.

You do have a lot to do and you will require teamwork on a scene.

Learn how to go from nuisance to asset in a few common sense approach steps.

 

Power point presentation - which you can save to your flash drive or smart phone/device.

Hand outs with some clear pointers and prompts to help you remember later.

Group limited to 25 people to retain the dynamic.

To book, follow the link above.  

 

This is not a first aid course!

A question was asked:
Can anyone attend the course, or any club members or those associated with the club?

The course, thus course in particular has always been open to anyone.
especially those associated with members.

 

At no extra cost.

The other training courses are also open to anyone who wants to attend, even though we do this for member sof the BMWMCC.
Non-members just pay more than members do

Once again, thank you to Donford Stellenbosch for hosting the BMWMCC course  and for assisting with set-up and clearing away.

 

Thank you to all who attended, we had a full house, and lots of participation.
Your notes have been emailed to you.

 

a wood of thanks to for the patients in photos on the real case studies, it always makes training more relevant to use material from actual events.

I hope this training stands you in good stead and empowers you to do what others fear to do.

Thanks Willem for transferring files from cloud to desktop. Respect!

It was really great to meet a lot of new people and see many new faces.

Especially from other motorcycle clubs, you are all most welcome.

Lastly To John Carr who does so much to support rider training, in so many ways, not just giving it, but making sure it can happen, your back ground work in all the training is very much apprciated

SJOE! Andy duisende dankies. Hierdie was 'n "eye-opener"!! Was al op 'n ongeluk scene of 2 en self al in een of 2 en daar is verseker goed wat ek nou heeltemal anders sal doen. 

 

Wil dit regtig daar buite sit dat elke ou wat op 'n motorfiets klim en selfs die gewone man in die straat hierdie moet bywoon. R170 is 'n baie klein belegging as dit iemand anders en selfs jou eie lewe kan red. 

 

WELL DONE!!!
