‘Biker Down’ team on fire at awards ceremony
Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) has received a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for its ‘Biker Down’ training scheme.
Designed for motorcyclists of all ages and experience, the free scheme offers the chance 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 a biker be first on the scene of a crash.
Biker Down was devised by KFRS’s Fire Bike team and is delivered by fire fighters alongside KFRS Emergency Life Support Instructors and Survival Skills Advanced Motorcycle Trainers. It is delivered free of charge to participants at local fire stations in small informal groups.
The Biker Down team collected its award at the PMIRSA ceremony at the Savoy Hotel in London on 11 December.
