Biker Down! dates added for 2020

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service has launched course dates for Biker Down! for 2020.

Now in its third year, Biker Down! is a free emergency first aid course aimed at motorcyclists in Cambridgeshire, and is hosted by firefighters from CFRS and Magpas Air Ambulance. The initiative offers motorcyclists the opportunity to learn practical skills to help avoid being involved in a crash, as well as essential first-aid training and advice on what to do should they find themselves first on the scene of a crash where someone is injured.

The course will take place at St Ives Fire Station from 10am until 1pm on the following days:

Community Risk Manager, Station Commander Kevin Andrews commented: “We launched Biker Down! in 2018, and have already seen over 250 bikers on the course. It’s been extremely popular since we launched it in Cambridgeshire, and at other fire and rescue services across the UK. 

“The course offers potentially life-saving advice for motorcyclists should they find themselves first on the scene of a crash, and also covers practical tips on how to avoid being involved in a collision.

“We hope to welcome many more motorcyclists across the county to sessions this year.”
