What people think about Biker Down

Peter:

"I attended a course in June at Norwood fire station. I've carried my blast bandage ever since. Today, I used my knowledge at an accident where a car turned right and cut across a biker. Thanks to you guys, I was prepared and able to sort it out. Thankfully, everybody walked away... But just wanted to say to you guys, your course rocks and to keep doing it, it was invaluable today. Thanks."

Keith:

"Just completed the Biker down session. Fantastic! Enthusiastically presented by professionals. Good pace, content, and well received. I can’t thank your colleagues enough. Well done London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service."
