Lezanne Dekoning, ASM Lead Instructor Lezanne is a serious Adrenalin Junky and loves anything that challenges her and her ability, she is a trained Scuba Diving Instructor and in her spare time she is a pilot and flies aerobatics and thus knows the thrill adrenalin can give. In 2013 she started riding Harleys from never been on a bike before but she needed to feel the exhilaration only bikers can explain. Due to her background as an Ambulance Emergency Assistant Paramedic, she is fully aware of the risks biking can have and have treated many bikers on scenes of accidents. She is very passionate about training and assisting people and has been training First Aid since 1995. She started her own First Aid and Emergency Training Company in 2002 and trains lots of different First Aid courses and have a huge range of students from Laypeople to Doctors, Nurses and Paramedics. Lezanne trains First Aid classes Level 1,2 and 3, she is also a Resuscitation Council of South Africa Instructor and American Heart Association Instructor training CPR courses.
She is part of the Johannesburg HOG Chapter and has two Harleys that she rides regularly, one Harley Trike and then her Prize winning Dragon bike Scorcher (a fully customized Harley Street Bob). She recently started riding her husband’s Heritage Soft-tail and has now taken it over from him as her own bike- leaving her husband with only 1 Street Glide… “The heritage is an awesome bike to ride, it’s fun and comfortable and I love the rumbling vibration. We ride nearly every weekend and sometimes even take the bike through some serious traffic to work in a very busy Johannesburg.”
Being in South Africa and having all the beautiful roads to travel on- some areas are very remote and sadly getting an ambulance to a scene of an accident even in big cities may be a huge challenge. “Through the years of working on the road as Ambulance Emergency Assistant, I have seen many people die or seriously injured due to lack of available emergency assistance and patient care, not having enough First Aiders and not having the right equipment and training- it is my dream to train as many people in the Bystander Assistance Program as possible to Save Lives and allow patients to ‘live to ride another day’.”
Lezanne is currently working for an International Medical Company full time as a Marketing Manager and is involved in training of distributors and healthcare professionals. Lezanne has many years of management experience since 1998 and has been employed in many different divisions from Sales to Marketing and Training.
Lezanne is available for training in all areas of South Africa. Contact her by filling out the online form.
Charlie has been an avid motorcycle enthusiast since he was age 14. “It just gets in your blood and you love to ride through the great outdoors!” Charlie and his wife (Kim) are currently living in Johannesburg, South Africa on assignment with his wife’s company, Cola-Cola. Previously, we lived in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. We are both American citizens from Laramie, Wyoming seeing the world.
Currently, we ride our 2013 Harley CVO Ultra Classic with the Johannesburg H.O.G. Chapter and our goal is to cover all 9 South African provinces this year. Our adventures take us to some very remote and beautiful places. Having first aid skills and being well trained in outdoor emergency care is essential. “Distances are quite vast, and you could wait quite a long time for an ambulance. Plus, you never know what level of ambulatory care might show up. Ambulances in South Africa are privately owned and severely underfunded. They range from simply a means of transportation with a gurney to some with full EMT equipment including oxygen, backboards, medications, etc. Services just aren’t consistent or like what you’d see like in other parts of the world.” In South Africa and other 2nd/3rd world countries you must be ready for anything.
Part of the year, Charlie is also a Professional Ski Patroller from Laramie, Wyoming. First Aid for ski injuries is very similar to first aid for the motorcyclist. You need to be ready to use your own first aid kit and be very self-sufficient. The injured person is outdoors, usually far from an urban center, and likely has a serious muscular skeletal injury requiring bandaging, splitting or in some cases, much more severe traumatic injuries. As a Ski Patroller, our training relies on The National Ski Patrol’s “Outdoor Emergency Care” body of knowledge and contains most of the DOT EMT skills but replaces some urban environment training with self-reliance and individual skills essential for outdoor emergencies.
Prior setting out over 3 years ago internationally, Charlie ran his own company and taught Project Management in the USA as well as had multiple positions with Microsoft, IBM, KPMG, and Teradyne. He has 35+ years of management consulting and project management experience to share as well.
Charlie is available for classes world-wide. He may be reached at +27 76 691 7346 (Johannesburg cell) or in the USA at 770-446-0876 (worldwide voicemail). Contact him online here. Shinny side up fellow riders!!
