Re: Moto First Aid Training ?

Well, a Red Cross First Aid course is really a good start. Try to get child/infant as well. This is just like math or science. Break it down to the small parts, and address one thing at a time. Remember your there to provide basic first aid until the pros arrive, anything more and you risk hurting more than helping. Most IFAKs don't have the gear to do what you are looking at, and if it does then it will take up mucho space. Another thing to remember is that you will not remember most of it unless you practice. KISS.

Re: Moto First Aid Training ?

My plan at this time is to wait and see how this class goes. If it gets a from the crowd, then I'll replicate that in or near Austin...

That course is scheduled for 14/15 April, so the Austin class won't be before then.

Re: Moto First Aid Training ?

Jeff,
I got my WFA cert from The Expedition School here in Austin. It was taught as Wilderness and Remote Area First Aid–anywhere an ambulance wasn't handy. Certainly applicable to motorcycling. Certainly could be adapted to include more trauma treatment.

Outstanding course. Great people. Terrific outfit.

A great thing about training is that it clarifies what you're trying to accomplish and cuts out a lot of decision-making.

CPR was a prerequisite. Everybody should get CPR training. Only takes a few hours as taught now.

BTW, a good moto IFAK doesn't have to be very big. Really just a quick trauma kit. Let everybody carry their own dang bandaids and immodium.

Good on you, Jeff, for initiating this.

Re: Moto First Aid Training ?

Hi Stevie - yeah, a friend of mind pointed out the expedition school. I'll give them a call. I've been waiting for the original class near Dallas to make, so I could get feedback from that before trying to set this up in Austin. I've been super busy & distracted, too. That class is this weekend, so I'll quiz some from that class, then will call the Expedition folks and try to get something actually on the calendar for the Austinites.
