Rider Alert Program
The East Rivanna Volunteer Fire Company is proud to support the Rider Alert program, and is now a distributor for Rider Alert cards!
The program, designed to help save lives, 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.
For more information, or to obtain your card, please contact Assistant Chief Dustin K. Lang. For other Rider Alert distributors, please visit Rider Alert's website by clicking the banner above or download a list here.
