The Biker NI Safety Cards have been relaunched by a number of organisations at the NI Motorcycle Festival at the Eikon Exhibition Centre in Lisburn today.
The useful card is for motorcyclists to record important personal details and medical history then place inside their helmet as a medic alert. The information will prove vital to ambulance crews if the motorcyclist is involved in a road traffic collision. The card also includes a detachable “Do not remove helmet” sticker to alert responders to the fact you are carrying the card and to remind others to keep the helmet in place until emergency help arrives.
The cards were extremely popular when initially released and due to kind sponsorship from JMK Solicitors, the cards have been updated and an extensive print run has been completed.
Maurece Hutchinson, Managing Director of JMK Solicitors, said “When approached by Howard Anderson from the British Motorcyclist Federation to help get the cards back into circulation, we were only too glad to get involved. We would encourage all motorcyclists to pick up a card and apply the sticker from the card to their helmet and carry the card at all times”
The cards are also being supported by Road Racing Ireland, NI Fire & Rescue Service, Air Ambulance NI, Bike Safe, NI Ambulance Service and Institute of Advanced Motorists.
