Here is more info;
Accident Scene Management (ASM), was established in 1996, to reduce injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists through first response education. Since its humble beginnings, ASM has become the largest motorcycle trauma training organization in the world! We teach both bystanders and professional rescuers what to do when a motorcycle crash occurs to improve outcomes.
BREAKFAST & LUNCH INCLUDED.

We Ride Together
The program is directed toward specific issues related to motorcycle-related crashes, including the assessment and treatment of the injured as well as how to safely administer care. We use simple acronyms such as PACT and ABCSS of Trauma to help the responder recall priorities
P – Prevent Further Injury (Scene Safety)
A – Assess the Situation (to look for life threats and gather information for your 911 call)
C – Contact the EMS (Do not delay! Call while doing step one and two if you have a cell phone signal and do not have to leave the scene to call for help)
T – Treat the injured with Life-Sustaining Care (using the ABCSS of Trauma to prioritize)
A – Airway (determine if the person is breathing. Lift the jaw to keep the neck straight if you do not believe the person is breathing on their own). This is called Jaw thrust.
B – Breathing (if the person is not breathing on their own keep the jaw lifted and while using a breathing barrier, give two breaths initially then one every 6 seconds).
C – Circulation (in trauma, a loss of circulation comes from bleeding. Look for and treat obvious external bleeding using Direct Pressure or a Tourniquet (arms and legs only) if necessary.
S – Shock (consider internal bleeding – elevate legs, cover the person for warmth, and STAY CALM. Do not give them anything to drink even if they ask).
S – Spinal Restriction (Less movement is better! Keep the person as still as possible until emergency workers arrive and take over for you)
