First aid for bikers
London bikers can now take part in a special First Aid for Motorcyclists course with St John Ambulance London.
It's being offered due to the huge rise in motorcyclists in the capital, and teaches how to assess an emergency situation, determine the priorities and manage the whole scene. You'll also learn how to make the area safe for yourself and others, and how to give accurate information to the emergency services.
