Road-Guardians-logoThe Road Guardians Program was created to  support Motorcycle Trauma Training education as a critical element to outcomes should a crash occur. Road Guardians is a nationally branded program that supports Accident Scene Management’s Mission to Reduce Injuries and fatalities to Motorcyclists. The program provides Resources, Rewards and Recognition to those who are properly trained and properly licensed. We encourage motorcyclists to be “lifelong learners” by providing resources and opportunity as well. Through Road Guardians we not only are able to connect to our safety minded riders, feeding them safety information, but we are also able to support an area of motorcycle safety often forgotten. Bystander Assistance training specific to motorcycle crashes is imperative for all motorcyclists and trained rescuers. In order for the best possible outcome we need to focus on preventing a crash from occurring in the first place, and then preparing for proper response in the event a crash occurs. Through the Road Guardians Program we highlight six areas of motorcycle safety in which any motorcyclist can take personal responsibility to get educated.

Our website provides both free and members only services. We seek to create a one-stop community for learning ways to improve riding skills, links to safety education and services, legal resources (as recommended by Bikers), biker owned businesses. After too many hours to count, our volunteer researchers have helped us create the most comprehensive motorcycle safety resource on the web!

What is Accident Scene Management?acm_logo

Accident Scene Management (ASM) is the leading International motorcycle trauma training organization. We were established in 1996 and are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to reducing injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists through first response education. We teach bystanders and EMTs what to do in order to prevent injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists.  Click here to see the Accident Scene Management’s  Introduction on Slideshare.


 

Accident Scene Management Classes

Brothers & sisters taking care of each other. ASM classes are motorcycle crash specific! When a trauma results in CPR the victim only has a 1% chance of survival. We must do everything we can to avoid getting to that point!!! ASM classes are for both the average rider and for the Professional Rescuer. What are you willing to do for your fellow rider? What are they willing to do for YOU?

Motorcycle safety expert and founder of Accident Scene Management, Vicki Sanfelipo, demonstrates how to properly treat an injured rider during a safety demonstration in Sturgis for the Allstate Rider Protection Project.

 

Statement of Purpose

Crash SceneThe purpose of the Bystander Assistance Programs are to enhance the survival rate and reduce severity of injuries for the injured riders of all motorized vehicles. We expect to decrease the chance of rescuer injury due to inappropriate actions at the accident scene. We also expect to educate motorists how to protect themselves legally and financially should an accident occur.

Goals and Objectives
The program is directed toward the prompt and safe assessment and treatment of the injured as well as how to prioritize care. We teach Scene Management and explain Good Samaritan Laws.

This course will provide the participant with a heightened awareness of how to respond using the ackronym PACT

  • P = Prevent Further Injuries
  • A = Assess the Situation
  • C = Contact the EMS
  • T = Treat the Injured with the ABCSS of Trauma

                   A = Airway – Using the Jaw Thrust Technique, lift the Jaw to remove the tongue from                                                –                         the back of the throat to allow a passageway for air

                   B = Breathing – If the person does not breathe on their own, assist them with two
                          breathes initially, then one breath every 6-8 seconds
                   C = Circulation – In trauma the loss of circulation is most likely from blood loss. In most
                          cases the heart is still working so the focus is on controlling Blood Loss vs Chest
                          Compressions (which may cause a person to bleed out more quickly). Look for and
                          treat External Bleeding First!
                   S = Shock – Three kinds of shock are likely to be present: Neurogenic (Head Trauma),
                          Hypovolemic (Blood Loss) and Psychogenic (Psychological) shock. Elevate uninjured
                          legs and stay calm. Gather information from the injured person.
                   S = Spinal Immobilization – Minimize movement of the spine, especially the neck.

If you are alone you Prioritize in this order – the only exception being in the event of Massive Bleeding where you will address bleeding first, then breathing.
