One million crash cards

10 February 2014

The millionth CRASH Card has been produced and was available to motorcyclists at the London Motorcycle Show in Docklands.

This staggering number of free medical alerts and motorcycle rider advice Cards was achieved by the integrated workings of groups in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, The Isle of Man, Sweden, Finland, Romania, Portugal and the USA.

CRASH Card is a programme which won a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2011. Motorcyclists place the card inside their crash helmet as a medic alert. The details which the rider has written on the card provide vital information for attending ambulance crews if the motorcyclist is injured in an road traffic collision. Saving valuable time and helping treatment especially if the rider is either unconscious or unable to communicate.

CRASH Card was created by the committee of the Ambulance Motorcycle Club a group of experienced Paramedics and ambulance staff who are passionate about motorcycling.
