Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service is offering free first aid courses for local motorcyclists again in 2015.

The sessions, which include guidance on how to manage a crash scene, will be running at fire stations across Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes throughout the year.

They usually comprise 12 people, start at 7.30pm and last about three hours.

Keith Wheeler, Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service’s Road Safety Officer, said: “We have trained 749 people since we started in February 2013, which we are extremely proud of.

“Some of those riders have already used the skills that we taught them to help other motorcyclists who have crashed, but they can also use their skills to help other injured road users too.

“Courses are already being arranged for 2015 and we look forward to welcoming friends new and old to our courses next year.”

Although these courses are free, Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service gives attendees the chance to make a donation to charity.

2015 dates currently available are:

Saturday 7 February, 9am, Milton Keynes - 4 places left

Saturday 7 February, 2pm, Milton Keynes - 5 places left

Saturday 28 February, 9am, Marlow - 8 places left
