Rider Alert
Richmond Ambulance Authority and Bon Secours Virginia Health System, in partnership with Motorcycle Virginia, Inc., are offering a program in Virginia called Rider Alert cards. The program provides free identification data cards that will help first responders provide rapid and accurate medical assistance to motorcyclists involved in serious accidents.

Louisa Co Sheriff's Office becomes the 1st Sheriff's Office in the nation to offer the Rider Alert Cards for Motorcycle Safety. The Cards are available at the Office, Monday - Friday - 8:00am - 4:00pm. The program provides free identification data cards that will help first responders provide rapid and accurate medical assistance to motorcyclists involved in serious accidents.

Rider Alert cards are placed inside riders' helmets and contain vital, life-saving information, emergency contact, and any important medical history. When first responders arrive on the scene of a motorcycle accident, a one-inch, round sticker on the outside of the helmet will indicate that the biker has the Rider Alert card. The sticker also warns bystanders not to remove the helmet, which could prevent further injury. This program is the first of its kind in the United States, and organizers hope it will be a model program for other states.
