First on Scene First Aid

Details of the first aid course for 2013 have now been finalised

Once again we are indebted to Marty for arranged and providing, ‘The First on Scene First Aid’ course which will take place on Sunday 31st March 2013, starting at 9am and finish around 4pm.

These courses have been run over the last three years and those who have attended will tell you that not only is it a first class course but a real good laugh as well.

The First on scene First Aid Course was designed by the Boundary and Marty and is active and practical in nature.

Students will receive ‘class-room tuition’ but will spend a significant proportion of their time in the open, dressed in their motorcycle clothing dealing with a variety of incidents they may come across whilst out and about on their motorcycles.

Not only does the course deal with Basic Life Skills but looks at practical problems in making a ‘scene safe’.

The course will be held in the Community engagement building attached to Stranton fire station in Stockton Street, Hartlepool.

The building is a large blue porta-cabin style within the fire station with access from the front off Stockton street next to the station appliance bays; right hand side as you look at the station; and access from the station yard off Clark street.

There is no parking on site for cars inside the station yard, bikes will be allowed in. There is parking in Clark street and four parking bays near the access door at the front of the building one being a disabled bay; this can be used as we will have the building to ourselves.

Please do not go to the station for information or access Marty will be there from 0830. If you come in the station yard on foot, walk straight towards the blue building and come in the side door, not the one near the cars.

If you come into the yard on a bike, park as close to the rear of the fire engine next to the blue building. If you come to the front the first door up the ramp will be open come in and ring the bell.

There will be tea/coffee and biscuits available but you will be required to bring their lunch with them.

It is better if people come on bikes with their gear on for obvious reasons.

If people have to come by car please bring you motorcycle riding gear including helmet with you.

The course will be to HSE standards and accredited. The course is classed as an Emergency first aid certificate.

The course fee is £5 per person payable to Marty. This course is solely for the members (and their partners) and sponsors of the Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group and their helpers. This course is put on at basically no charge as a thank you from the Boundary and Marty for taking part in our events and helping us raise money for our two charities.

This same course held in the private sector is expensive and without blowing our own trumpets ours takes some beating, thanks to Marty’s content and style of instruction. Remember first Aid skills can be used in all every day scenarios and we have even had children attend and thoroughly enjoy themselves.

For those people wanting a certificate there is a charge of £10

Course members can ring Marty on his mobile phone the number of which is on the forum at;,7631.0.html

The course is limited to 12 places and is on a first come first served basis.

At the presentation night on Saturday 27th October 2012 the latest members to have successfully completed the course were handed their certificates by the Assistant Chief Constable of Cleveland Police Sean White. The course originated in 2007 and since then over 80 people have attended and received their accredited course certificates. The Group are indebted to Fire Fighter Marty Curran for his continuing support in running the course. One of the Groups younger members Cloe who is only 12 years of age is to be congratulated on passing the course.

The Boundary 500 Motorcycle Group in conjunction with Marty Curran from Cleveland Fire Brigade were responsible for putting together an accredited ‘ First on Scene First Aid Courser’.
