Would You Know What To Do? The Importance of Motorcycle Accident Scene Management Training

Accident Scene Management (ASM) classes are designed to teach individuals how to safely and effectively manage the scene of a motorcycle accident or other emergency situation.


These classes typically cover topics such as:


  1. Assessment and scene evaluation

  2. Injury assessment and triage

  3. Basic life support and first aid

  4. Communication and incident command

  5. Hazard control and scene safety

  6. Victim stabilization and extrication

  7. Documentation and reporting


ASM classes are usually offered by organizations such as:


  1. Accident Scene Management, Inc. (ASM)

  2. Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF)

  3. American Red Cross (ARC)

  4. National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT)

  5. Local emergency medical services (EMS) providers


These classes are often targeted towards motorcyclists, but are also useful for anyone who wants to learn how to respond to emergency situations, including drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.


In Chicago, Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE Foundation is working with Accident Scene Management, Inc. to make training available by building the capacity of World of Soul Motorcyclist Association's local teams to reach riders, clubs and motorcycle-related organizations in order to facilitate classes. This project is made possible through grant funds from the Illinois Department of Transportation.


If you're interested in taking an ASM class, we recommend searching online for classes in your area or contacting local organizations that offer them.
