CRASH Card Cornwall

Cornwall Council road safety runs the CRASH card scheme in Cornwall.

Designed by paramedics who are passionate about motorcycles, the card provides vital medical information for ambulance crews at the scene of a crash. It also carries the word CRASH which gives information to help you determine the response of the emergency services when calling 999 from the roadside.

Scores of riders collected cards when we launched the scheme at Damerell’s Motorcycles in March 2012. The initial print run was produced in partnership with South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. Since then more than 3,000 cards have been distributed.

An added bonus of carrying the card in Cornwall is that Damerell’s give a 7.5% discount on its presentation in store.

Cards are available now at Damerell's, Cornwall Kawasaki Centre, Anton Parris Motorcycles, Cornwall Bike Training or by emailing bikers@cornwall.gov.uk and giving your postal address along with how many cards you need. (More than one helmet, regular pillion?)

Please continue to visit this page as we will add more CRASH Card outlets as they join the scheme.

The CRASH Card was designed and created by the Ambulance Motorcycle Club, in 2009. Since its introduction in Essex it has been recognised as the leading medical alert for motorcyclists in the UK. It won the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2011. The American version of the programme "Rider Alert" was awarded the JEMS10 award for the most innovative improvement to pre hospital medical care.

The CRASH Card programme is available in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, America and Sweden. To date many motorcyclists across the world have been assisted after an accident by the scheme. Globally well over 570,000 cards are in existence.
