Biker Down Training

Updated: Mar 24, 2019

Leicestershire Fire & Rescue service offers a Free Biker Down training course, we filmed this video at Birstall Fire Station on Tuesday 19th March 2019. The course was hosted by MCA Motorcycles and was one of the first evening time courses on offer. I (Russell Thorpe) being a keen biker and part of a local Biker Group attended this free course to learn about Accident Scene Management, Motorcycle First Aid and the Science of Being Seen.


The course was extremely informative, with professionals on hand to answer questions. Would I recommend this course?, yes definitely, well worth spending 3 hours of your time. The course gives your confidence in dealing with Road Traffic Collisions that you might come across, as a rider you might one day be able to save the life of fellow bikers whether it's a family member, friend or a complete stranger.




Presented by fully trained members of the Firebike team, based at Birstall Fire Station.

What is BikerDown!?


Many motorcyclists ride in groups or pairs, so it is often the case that when one is involved in an accident the first person in attendance will often be a fellow biker. BikerDown is a FREE three hour course for all bikers, giving them an awareness of the dangers at a crash scene, how to deal with a casualty and, how to increase visibility to other road users.




If you enjoy riding a motorcycle then this course is a MUST! It will give you knowledge and skills that you can use if you come across a road traffic collision, and the potential to make a real difference and save lives. It’s FREE and on completion you will receive a certificate and a motorcycle first aid kit.
