About the program
Over 52% of motorcycle crashes will result in serious injury or fatality. EMS providers must be prepared to assess
the crash scene, prevent rescuer injury and assess and treat the injured rider. Are you prepared to manage
motorcycle trauma? Is your service ready to respond to motorcycle crashes? The Two Wheel Trauma Program will
provide you with the tools you need to manage motorcycle trauma and make a difference in the care and
transportation of the injured rider.
Program Goal
Our goal is simple. To enhance the survival rate for the injured rider(s) of bicycles, motorcycles, ATV’s, mopeds,
snowmobiles and other vehicles of similar design and to reduce the potential for rescuer injury.

1. Identify motorcycle parts; including the associated hazards and injury potential.
2. Explain two principles for crowd management.
3. Identify treatment modalities for environmental hazards including hypothermia and burn injuries.
