ABATE of Iowa Two Wheel Trauma

March 9, 2024

Genesis Medical Center
East Campus: Heart Institute Adler Classroom

Davenport, Iowa

Donations Accepted

Over 50% of all motorcycle crashes will result in serious injury or fatality. EMS providers must be prepared to assess the crash scene, prevent rescuer injury and accurately triage & treat the injured. The Two Wheel Trauma concept was fashioned in early 1986 by three experienced EMS providers in rural Clay County, IA. Anita Bailey, Slider Gilmore and Frank Prowant saw the need for a specialized CEH program to focus on motorcycle trauma. Wayne Wierson, an avid motorcyclist, joined the faculty in 2005 to present Share the Road.

The Two Wheel Trauma program intends to reduce fatalities and improve the survival rates for those injured in crashes involving motorcycles, bicycles, all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles and other vehicles of similar designs, through prevention and education.

At the conclusion of the program the participant shall be able to:

  1. Explain the Share the Road program goal of encouraging all drivers, of all vehicles, to safely interact with motorcycles on the roadways to prevent crashes.

  2. Identify motorcycle parts, including the associated hazards and injury potential.

  3. List two principles for on-scene crowd management.

  4. Select correct treatments for environmental, extremity and soft tissue injuries.

  5. Choose proper treatments for life-threatening injuries that result from TWT crashes.

  6. List when and how to remove a helmet.
