Call for Interest – Accident Scene Management Bystander Assistance Course

Attention, the Carolinas BMW MOA is currently trying to gauge interest in scheduling a course on Accident Scene Management Bystander Assistance Course. Cost will be $65 if we get a minimum of 10 interested students in the Basic Course.

The class teaches the basics of motorcycle trauma using P.A.C.T This one day course is geared toward the lay rescuer but is great for the EMS worker as well. Helmet removal, moving the injured and jaw thrust rescue breathing are all a part of this class. Don’t let the nickname fool you. This class contains all the information you need to respond to a trauma scene.

For more information on the course go to: www.accidentscene.or

We are currently trying to gauge interest in a group to take this class. If interested, please email interest to Holly_Emerson@bellsouth.net with Accident Scene Course in the subject heading.
