During the winter months, I will be running some first aid courses for NAM. As always the emphasis is on road safety.
Some time ago I looked into creating a phone application, which would give information about motorcyclists in case of an emergency ICE.
There are plenty off apps out there, but they all rely on an unlocked phone.
To get round this I made up a document as below, printed it off and photographed it with my phone, saving it as a screensaver. Please feel free to use it as a template

It will give emergency services, a heads up as to who you are, as well as who to contact. How many of you know these details of the people you ride with ? I certainly don't.
If you were involved in an accident, and had to phone the emergency services, would you always know where you are ?
Again there are phone applications that can help. Look for a phone tracking application.
They are designed to find your phone, if it is lost or stolen, but as long as you have a signal, when you switch the app on, it will tell you exactly where you are. Invaluable in an emergency.
These are just a couple of the things I cover on my courses, but there is no reason why you shouldn't adopt them now !
Kind regards to you all Framey
