After cancellations last year during the COVID pandemic, Australia’s innovative First Aid For Motorcyclists program is making a welcome comeback in 2021.
Booking for 2021 courses are now available by clicking here with conditional discounts on some courses by entering the discount code signup21.
It comes as motorcycle injuries and deaths haven’t record levels in some states this year as more and more people are attracted to motorcycling.
Let’s face it; crashes are inevitable and what you do in the minutes after a crash can be vital to the victims recovery and survival.
But most riders are not familiar with emergency first aid procedures and are confronted with questions such as whether to remove the victim’s helmet, how do you secure the scene, how do you stem bleeding, how do you revive an unconscious rider, etc.
These and many more questions are provided in the various courses provided by the FAFM Motorcycle Accident Management which was founded by Roger Fance and Tracy Hughes in 2003.
In 2018, the program was bought by former nurse Debb Geerts and husband Bryan.
Debb is one of the founders of 2WheelBabes which has been running Babe Raid rallies across the country since 2009.
The says she moved on from organising Babe Raids to concentrate on the FAFM program.
“We are here to give you the opportunities to upskill your riding life, to share that knowledge with your friends and riding groups and to bring rider safety to the front of everyone’s minds,” she says.
“Now is a great time to refresh your skills, gain new skills and just be confident that if you did come across a rider down, you know that you could assist during that vital first hour or two.”
