Advanced Accident Scene Management Class

Meeting upstairs in the Den at Wolverine Harley-Davidson®


Accident Scene Management Course Description of Basic and Advanced Follows. This day’s event is advanced. 

Would you know what to do at a motorcycle accident?
 
Imagine that you and a few of your friends are taking a motorcycle ride. All of a sudden a fellow rider who happens to have a passenger hits a pothole and goes down. The rider is unconscious and not breathing and the passenger, is bleeding badly from the left leg. Would you know what to do to help these riders and minimize further injuries until help arrives?
 
Fellow motorcycle riders are often the first on scene of a motorcycle accident. So if the answer is no, become the one who knows what to do by attending the Motorcycle Accident Scene Management (ASM) program. 
 
This is a hand’s on course that has been accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This is a certification program that teaches non-medically and medically trained people what to do at a motorcycle accident. 
 
The purpose of the ASM Program is to enhance the survival rate and reduce severity of injuries for the injured riders of all motorized vehicles. ASM expects to decrease the chance of rescuer injury due to inappropriate actions at the accident scene. They also expect to educate motorists how to protect themselves legally and financially should an accident occur. 
 
The program is directed toward specifics issues related to traffic safety and motorcycle related crashes including the assessment and treatment of the injured as well as how to safely administer care. They use the simple acronyms such as PACT and ABCSS of Trauma to help the responder recall priorities


  • P – Prevent Further Injury (Scene Safety)
  • A – Assess the Situation (to gather information for 911 call)
  • C – Contact the EMS (do not delay – do this while doing step one and two if you have a cell phone signal and do not have to leave the scene to call for help)
  • T – Treat the injured with Life Sustaining Care (using the ABCSS of Trauma to prioritize)A – Airway (determine if the person is breathing. Lift jaw keeping neck straight if you do not believe the person is breathing).
 
  • B – Breathing (if the person is not breathing on their own keep the jaw lifted and using a breathing barrier, give two breaths initially then one every 6-8 seconds).
  • C – Circulation (in trauma a loss of circulation comes from bleeding. Look for and treat obvious external bleeding using Direct Pressure, Elevation and a Pressure Point or Tourniquet (limbs only) if necessary.
  • S – Shock (consider internal bleeding – elevate legs, cover the person for warmth and stay calm. Do not give them anything to drink even if they ask).
  • S – Spinal Immobilization (hold the person’s next still until the Emergency workers arrive and take over for you)The motorcycle is the mechanism of injury for this program. What is learned may be used in many situations and it is my opinion, there is no other program that does as well of job as this one.
