Biker Down Lancashire


Biker Down is a free, 3-hour course aimed at motorcyclists and their pillions.Biker Down

The awareness training comprises of three modules:

  • Module 1 – Incident Scene Management: managing the scene until help arrives, risk assessment and appropriate actions.
  • Module 2 – Casualty Care: how to treat the typical trauma and mechanism of injury found at the scene of a motorcycle related incident, including major bleeds and basic life support, managing spinal injuries, helmet removal and CPR.
  • Module 3 – The Science of Being Seen (devised by Kevin Williams from Survival Skills Motorcycle Training): examining phenomena such as motion camouflage, saccadic masking and looming and highlighting that a biker’s best defense is assuming that they might not be seen and riding accordingly.

Biker Down Lancashire is hosted and delivered by Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service staff who all have a keen interest in motorcycles.
