Ambulance Motorcycle Club CRASH card

If you’re injured and are unable to talk coherently because of concussion how does the ambulance crew find out who you are?

More importantly they may need to know what medication you currently take or your medical history. The Ambulance Motorcycle Club has devised a simple card that details all this information, making it easier for the attending ambulance crew or the person making the 999 call to provide the necessary details.

The card is placed either underneath the crash helmet lining or in your pocket/wallet with a green dot sticker placed on the right hand corner of the helmet to help the emergency services to your CRASH card. We would suggest in your wallet as removing a crash helmet after an incident is something ambulance crews are fully trained on.

The scheme has been produced by the East of England Ambulance Service and are therefore only available in certain counties. To obtain a card please visit and click on your county to find out where to collect one.
