Mission

Accident Scene Management (ASM) Inc.'s mission is to reduce injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists through 1st response education. Motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a crash than people riding in a passenger car, according to the National Highway Safety Administration. The weakest link in the chain of survival is first response/bystander care. First Aid and CPR classes don't address the critical aspects of motorcycle trauma, such as injury assessment, opening the airway, spine motion restriction and removal of a full face helmet. Since 1996, ASM has become the global leader in Motorcycle Trauma outcomes with instructors in 32 states and 6 countries.

Notes from the nonprofit

Despite our humble grassroots organization we have grown to become the Leading International Motorcycle Trauma Training Organization. So much needs to be accomplished from providing increased access to millions of potential students to implementing Best Practice Recommendations for surviving trauma. Join our cause! It is our hope that as we grow we can include Bystander training to general public starting with the most active and the most vulnerable roadway users.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Because there is a gap between when a crash occurs and when professional help arrives, training bystanders to properly react is critical to best outcomes. Because motorcyclists often travel in groups, training bystanders to fill that gap with proper actions and reactions can help! For less than the cost of one piece of equipment that sits on one ambulance we can train 20-50 students! We also have a training module for Emergency workers which include police, fire and ambulance workers. This 3 hour class is specific to trauma and deals with motorcycle specific safety equipment and psychosocial concerns.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

ASM Instructor Certification

ASM instructors are taught to offer 5 different programs. The first program is a 100 series class that is an 7 hour instructor led class that teaches the basics of motorcycle trauma. The 200 series class is a Blended Learning of the 100 series class. It combines online and in person hands on training of basic skills. The 300 series "Advanced" program is only available to people who have completed the 100 or 200 series course course. This 7 hour instructor led class helps prepare the student for roadside medical concerns and to be a better assistant to the EMS when they arrive. The 400 Series class is the Blended Learning version of the Advanced series class. The 500 series program is geared toward emergency professionals that would like to learn more about motorcycle crashes. It focuses on professional rescuer safety, psychosocial concerns, helmet removal, jaw thrust breathing and features a motorcycle lab. Refresher training is recommended to be taken every 2 years.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to reduce injuries and fatalities through education. We have focused on Motorcycle trauma for 19 years but in our 20th year we are wanting to take our successful program to other roadway users. We have developed a network of professional trainers whoa re ready to teach!

1. We are putting some of our program online in order to shorten our classroom time and make that time more hands on.
2. We plan to offer both certification and non-certification programs to give students more choices and recognize that some information is better than no information.
3. We are writing a business plan which we will submit to each state DOH and DOT requesting funds to develop and implement community education.

Our structure is in place and is solid. We have a home office, a good and functional website, a learning management program and an event management program. We currently have 130 instructors in 32 states. We have secured a google grant program and we have a monthly newsletter and social media in place for getting the word out. We have trademarks and copyrights on our materials. We are currently the only accredited bystander training organization in the USA.

We have trained over 30,000 students since starting our organization and we grow each year with more instructors and more students. Our focus has been motorcycle trauma but our platform was built to be able to expand to other markets as we are able. Much of our challenge has been funding, partially due to our specific focus on Motorcyclists and the industry's resistance to embracing motorcycle trauma as a topic. We have been told that talking about motorcycle crashes doesn't sell motorcycles but I challenge the motorcycle industry to look at this differently. What is the number one reason people do not buy motorcycles? Potential injuries and fatalities scare people and their families. What if, through our combined efforts injuries and fatalities were not an issue? That would be good for everyone!
