Richmond Launches Nation's First Rider Alert Cards for Motorcyclists
Date:4/14/2011

RICHMOND, Va., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Richmond Ambulance Authority (RAA) and Bon Secours Virginia Health System, in partnership with Motorcycle Virginia, Inc., today launched a new program designed to save the lives of injured motorcyclists. The program provides free identification data cards that will help first responders provide rapid and accurate medical assistance to riders involved in accidents.

"This card is born out of experience – it has been designed by paramedics who have been on both sides of an accident as the injured rider or as medical help. Accessing this basic information after a motorcycle accident can sometimes be impossible. This small tool could mean the difference between life and death."

"We are so pleased to be involved with such an innovative program," said Toni Ardabell, CEO Bon Secours St. Mary's Hospital." "This truly is a program that can provide critical information, allowing first responders to give injured cyclists the best po
