In January 2018, members of Powder Keg HOG chapter 4035 chapter and guests took part in basic, advanced and refresher courses for Accident Scene Management at Powder Keg Harley Davidson in Mason, OH. Powder Keg has been committed to safety training with 26 Road Captains trained in either Basic or Advanced ASM. The group also instructs safe riding techniques during pre-ride briefings prior to chapter rides.
Instructors for the courses were Frank Fuller and Mark Ziegelmeyer, both members of Powder Keg HOG. Utilizing their teaching skills and training, the group was taught how to recognize and treat life threatening injuries along with hands-on experience until medical help arrives on scene. They were shown that with the proper education and training, emergency care can begin immediately at the scene of an accident, addressing the first few critical minutes after a crash.
