Re: Moto First Aid Training ?

Jeff,

Perhaps the American Red Cross First Aid comprehensive training might fit the ticket. They deal extensively with broken bones, lacerations and other forms of bodily damage that might similar to motorcycle accident.

Several years ago, I came upon a horrific sport-bike crash on Highway 1431. The young rider was in a helmet immobile by the side of the road. It would have been tempting to try to remove the helmet myself, but in fact it can be dangerous since it can aggravate spinal damage unless properly done by a medic or first responder. Interestingly, my Shorai helmet has a special emergency tab on the side that allows first responders to remove just the shell and not the inner lining in case the neck or spine is thought to be involved.
