Here's an idea ... safety related.

If there is one already ... cool, but if not ... there should be a motorcycle specific first aid course. How to deal with typical injuries found in a motorcycle accident.

Just a thought.

I think there is something that protects against that called the "Good Samaritan Law/Rule"

Nice attitude... not everyone in this world is out to sue.

I think that's a great idea... just basic stuff like how to stablize a patient's head, how to control bleeding, signs & symptoms of shocks, and a few other things would be valuable information to know, because depending on where you are riding at... sometimes EMS may take up to 30 minutes.

That is only to cover cases like cpr and broken ribs and stuff. If some one has a broken next and you do something really stupid and move them unnecessarily and kill them you can still be held liable. Best thing to do is check and see that they have a good airway and secure the scene( make sure you guys don't get run over again) and call 911. If they do not have a good airway or not breathing then move them as minimally as possible to establish an airway and then apply pressure to any free flowing wounds.

Good post Moody.

My favorite part:

Quote:
Be careful what you say around the victim, even if they are unconscious. Hearing works in the unconscious state and if you say something like, "Boy, is this dude messed up bad! Maybe we shouldn't call an ambulance after all!", it's going to register at some level with the person and can do nothing but harm. How you say things will be important as what you say; keep (or at least sound) calm and it will reduce the panic of everyone else present.
And in regards to assisting with the injury, first aid is called first aid because that is all it is.

I think it would be a good idea. Maybe get with Red Cross or some organization like that to see if they can have a course? AMA?

Understandable but, everyone I ride with I consider to be good friends and i would be willing to risk my bank account against saving their life. That is just me though but this also comes back to choosing who you ride with.

As a kid I had first aid training ... how to bandage stuff and make splints and what not. I'm sure we could read a lot of different posts about how to take off a helmet (only when absoloutly needed), or how to stop bleedings and stuff.

But learning hands on would be a better way. In a controlled environment with knowledgable instructors.

I'm sure in the middle of the city 911 will get to you fast, but what about those nice day trips with you and your buddies out to Austin? In the middle of nowhere? I would think that these are important things to know.
