FBOS- First Person on the scene of an Accident

Monday 15th August

What to do when you are confronted with an accident on the pathway or road?


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.

Invite your colleagues, and family to this game changing course experience.


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 or paramedic 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 major role player while waiting for the emergency services to arrive.

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.

Many thanks to the group who attended last night. 

You were all a great audience, thanks for the questions and I really hope that you never need to use this course, but if you do.... I know that you have a good perspective of what value you can add and how you can prevent further injury.



Special thanks to our partners Donford Motorrad and John for the venue and the catering.

Thank you again for this VERY informative course and for sharing your vast experiences.  I believe that the more knowledge you have, the less you'll panic, so hopefully I'll panic a little less after last night (every bit helps).

Hey Andy,

Thank you for last night's info, once again your vast knowledge and experience astounds me.  Hopefully we can put that newly gained insight to good use, should it ever be needed.
