 As much as we do not like to talk about it there are an alarming amount of people being injured while riding their motorcycles. Things are being done around the country in hopes of reducing these incidents.

In the meantime, one of the things we can do is to become knowledgeable about what to do if we are present when this happens.

Accident Scene Management was started in 1996 to reduce injuries and fatalities to motorcyclist through first responder education. This is the critical time to keep the motorcyclist alive until the ambulance and professional help like EMTs arrive. 
 
Approximately 236 motorcycle crashes result in injuries every day in the United States, with a average of about 86,000 total injuries from crashes per year.
 
According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) around 56 percent of all motorcycle crashes occur on urban roadways, with the majority of those accidents taking place at intersections. A rider in a collision with another vehicle are almost 27 times more likely to die and eight times more likely to be injured, than the occupants and driver of the vehicle.
 
You can help riders, family members and friends by taking the Accident Scene Management Class. This is a worldwide class taught by Vicki Sanfelipo and her certified instructors.
