Re: Motorcycle First Aid @ A&S Ducati
Thanks Megan and A&S for putting this on, and Ted Shred for letting us know, The teacher Phil was fantastic, with a good mix of Humor and Medical information. It was so refreshing to have a Fireman/EMT tell us what to do and what not to do and not pull any punches...some people actually left the room on some of the descriptions and what to do (Amputations and Eviscerations). Also gave us the latest techniques on CPR and recommended we all get further free training from our fire and police departments, not just for our fellow motorcycle buddies, but for our families as well. He also explained the "Good Samaritan laws", "Duty to Act" which only is required from Medical professionals and "Gross Negligence" definitions. Of course all of this is predicated on what you feel comfortable doing.
I highly recommend this class the next time they put it on. And they served us lunch too....grin.
