CRASH card launches new website

1 October 2013

From the 3rd of October CRASH card, the world’s most popular motorcycle medic alert will have a new home on the web.

It will have information, advice and downloadable resources for paramedics and road safety professionals as well as a list of outlets where the card can be collected for free.

Ian Burrel, General Secretary of the Ambulance Motorcyle Club said, "The new website is a great resource. The Card has proved to be popular both here in the UK the USA and Mainland Europe. The club committee which is based in Essex have brought together the most popular parts of the CRASH Card programme over the last four and a half years and now they are available to all in one place.”

The Ambulance Motorcycle Club which is made up of volunteer’s from ambulance services across the world admits it’s been a challenge to reintegrate the card back into their operations following an unsuccessful period where the programme was managed by a private medical equipment company.

“Its very important to the club, the programmes many distributors and users that CRASH card continues and remains to be free to the motorcyclist, the CRASH Card has saved riders lives in both the UK and USA" Ian continued, “the simplicity of the programme is its strength we are still amazed that thousands of motorcyclists a month choose to take a card and help themselves and others in potentially their hour of greatest need.”

CRASH card has won many accolades including Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2011 and FIM International Road Safety Award in 2012 together with the award for the most one of the most innovative medical product in the USA last year at the Gems 10 awards.

Ultimately Its about the motorcycle and its rider as the clubs moto says “we love bikes and hate falling off them”
