CRASH Card Scheme

The CRASH Card is a scheme led by East of England Ambulance Service and continues to go from strength to strength as an increasing number of motorcyclists from across the country opt to take part in the initiative.

As part of the scheme motorcyclists are issued with a card containing personal details and important medical information with additional advice provided about what to do if they are an uninjured rider or are the first on scene of a motorcycle Road Traffic Collision (RTC).

As a means of reducing the number of motorcycle casualties nationally, the 'CRASH Card' scheme continues to be well received as riders are keen to improve their own and other rider's safety and ensure fast, accurate medical treatment in the event of an accident.

The card is then located in the lining of the riders crash helmet and made identifiable to ambulance crews by location of a green dot on the outside of the crash helmet, allowing for easy access to vital information for riders who came off their bike, especially if they are unconscious or incoherent.

With the card now being distributed to thousands of motorcyclists who potentially live and ride in our region, it is important to recognise those who are part of the 'CRASH Card' scheme, in order to provide the most effective medical treatment in the event of an accident.
