Safety equipment for cyclists to ride safely

From November 6 to 9, there will be a national awareness campaign for cyclists "Cyclists, shine! About the theme of lighting - It’s about convincing aficionados of the 2 wheels to equip themselves properly at night to ride safely.

Without a lighting device, the cyclist substantially increases the risk of being the victim of an accident. The recall is far from futile because many cyclists neglect their lighting or think they are well equipped when it is not. At night, "you have to see and be seen".

From Monday 6th to Thursday 9th November, Amiens, in partnership with the Prefecture of the Somme, the Municipal Police of Amiens, the prevention service of Amiens Metropolis and the agency launch the operation "Cyclists shine": Tips on best practices, attitudes, and safety equipment suitable for cycling at night will be on the program of the event.

Stands will be set up in the city for the occasion, with an information point on the mandatory equipment of the cyclist, a repair workshop, the distribution of free vouchers for a technical control at the agency, visibility kits (reflective vest, reflex reflectors, fluorescent armbands, lamp set, etc.).

Bulletproof vests and heavy helmets for firefighters too

It is the air of the terrorist time, the violence of the moment and the national direction of the civil security which advises it. Rescue services are encouraged to equip themselves more heavily for their own protection. "We do not have any equipment obligation," says Lieutenant-Colonel in safety vest. "The national doctrine does not impose, it recommends. But it is hard to imagine a director engaging his workforce with nothing "adds the crisis management specialist. The Moseley subscribes and follows in the footsteps of the departments that crossed it before it which, unlike others, did not have to host matches of the Euro 2016 football that precipitated the application of the measure.

In detail, three Magellan rescue centers, "where three teams of six men per guard, plus one nurse," were trained, will receive personal protective equipment (PPE). A pack consisting of a level 3 ballistic helmet, without reinforced visor like that of the police or gendarmerie. "It does not work on a victim." This explains the preference of the SDIS for a splinter mask that "looks a bit like ski goggles", illustrates Christophe Retinoid. "The extraction (of a victim, Ed) is physical. We made the choice of lightness and practicality. "

After the head, the body will be dressed in a reflective vest (four, in front, behind and on the flanks), of a ballistic level 4 (resistant to ammunition of war). Black with a red flocking, "it is not very visible, but enough to identify us in the field. We are on sites where many orders and where tight tactical coordination "involves knowing who is in action. At this added weight, lifeguards add lighter accessories like knee pads and cut-resistant gloves. Finally, the staff will also have on them a tourniquet to pose oneself on a member or that of a wounded comrade.

It is necessary to extend the list with the collective equipments like rigid trays and flexible stretchers on which the victim is strapped and that one can tow a few meters with a cable to put it in the shelter. The radio exchange system integrates earpieces for communication as discreet as effective in a noisy environment. "We are on agile devices to be reconfigured permanently," says Christophe Retinoid. "We have always adapted." Trained to the nuclear, radiological, biological and chemical risks (NRBC), the reliefs add a mention "terrorism" which pushes them until the paradox of being equipped like police forces to assist victims.

The adaptation of the equipment to circumstances led the Department to open an envelope of 50 000 € for the purchase of new safety equipment. The market has been launched according to precise specifications and the rescue centers concerned should not be long in coming. "There were a lot of things we already had," says Lieutenant-Colonel Retinoid, SDIS 57. The bill is therefore limited. At the same time, the SDIS has increased the so-called "Damage Control" training with its staff. An effort launched for eight months and continues to teach the greatest number of firefighters.

"Even though we changed air with Charlie, the trigger of conscience," the Bata clan had an influence on how to operate, said Lieutenant-Colonel Retinoid, SDIS 57, as Nice did too and as the next attack will likely bring a new evolution in how to intervene in risky contexts.

To work on the bike with wear safety vest

"I'm not an exotic," Erich defends war. And in fact, whoever drives the bike to work today, no longer has to ask the question: Does not the car have a car? The teacher has already saddled almost 20 years ago.

Since this time, the 60-year-old has been riding a bicycle between his home and his workplace with wear a reflective vest. 25 kilometers, 25 kilometers, every school day, both summer and winter. Departure time in the morning: 6:15 am "In the winter it is not so tingling," war warns, which changes in snow then on a mountain bike with spikes. And conceded, at 20 degrees minus, the health prevails at war and the wheel remains in the garage. On the extreme days of extreme weather he travels to Steinem by car and from there by bike in the Benz Valley. Sometimes one must overcome oneself, says Krieg. But for this, unforgettable moments compensated. Sunsets, morning moods, cloud images: From the edge of the Steiner and from the heights, Krieg has already taken photos with his camera, which not only astonished the fellow circle. "I arrive with normal pulse and breath." On the way back, the climb to Steinem awaits. "Eight to ten minutes" war overlaps the duration of the climb.

The fact that the pedagogue, who has been teaching for 32 years, does not have to struggle to get uphill, is due to the fact that war is not only driving his workplace by the wheel. The road bike is also his sports safety equipment and the route training for the really challenging mountain marathons. Several times war went the Totaled over four passes and 5500 heights, the Marathon dales Dolomites and several times also with start. A route leads across the Stevie Pass. "It is very challenging" is the official information of the organizer. Erich Krieg can swarm about how the "swings" of over 20 sweeps "upwards." Pride, and he confesses, is war, that he has now driven 20 times the Alb extreme cycling marathon.

War has now come a little shorter; the number of kilometers traveled by bicycle has fallen from 16,000 to 12,000 kilometers per year. The enthusiasm for cycling, the intensive contact with nature, and the close-up experience of all seasons, have not let up. Cycling was not the first choice. It was football. When, in 1985, a doctor drew a sideline, because the knee had suffered damage, his recommendation for alternative sports went on swimming or cycling. War chose the wheel.

Ten years later, the club of cycling friends Bartholomew, whose chairman he is to this day, has raised the war. The 14 founding members have now become 140. "Cycling is booming." Once upon a time, war on the drive to school was started by a dog in the mist. Nothing happens. Drivers and animals were equally surprised. In order to be more visible, war is only possible with an alert yellow safety vest and, of course, with a helmet. "If someone goes without, I could get sick." The warriors also know that the war is sustained by riding helmets, if they want to swing on the wheel after class.

"I am already an outdoor person" admits war. In winter, you can go cross-country skiing, and the cross-country ski runs can be reached by bike. The great effect of sport is indisputable to war. For 30 years he had not missed a day at school. And there was never a delay with the bike. The woman is riding along, "where it is beautiful," war describes the goals for family excursions. Whether the fun of the grandchildren Ida and Henri When war finds three to four more wheel tracks in the morning on the way t in the snow, he knows: "I am in good company."

The safety equipment for car before the long weekend trip

Again there will be three days of rest and those who have in mind to travel in car must take into account certain aspects so that the ride does not suffer setbacks due to the car, keep the safety equipment and safety vest.

April has brought some holidays that have cut off the work week, allowing you to relax with the family or some solo starts. This, nevertheless, obliges to be attentive to the maintenance of the vehicle so as not to suffer unforeseen and thus to enjoy without startles.

That's why, and thinking about the next long weekend for Labor Day, which opens in May, Goodyear makes a small reminder of the nine elements to always keep in mind when going on a long trip.

Oil Levels

It is advisable to change it every 5 or 10 thousand kilometers and whenever you are going to make a long journey by road, due to the high requirement to which the engine will be subjected.

Filled antifreeze

The requirement of the engine in long trips also forces to monitor this liquid. Although it must be completed every six months, it must be done before the journey.

Monitor battery

Ideal battery maintenance is to change it every two years, so it is suggested to check your condition before traveling.

Appropriate emergency equipment

It is also important to check that the car has all the necessary elements in case of an incident: spare tire, cat, cross key, fuses, cords, lantern, triangle and reflective vest, remembering that the absence of the latter Is punished by law.

Flawless brakes

Check the wear of the brake shoes, brake pad conditions and check that the brake fluid levels are optimum.

Pen without damage

If the destination is southern Chile, chances are rain will appear. For this reason, it is ideal that the wiper blades are not damaged or worn, to better remove the water.

Ready lights

Be aware that all the lights in the car are properly lit. Also, pay close attention to the alignment of the lights, so as not to harm those who come in the opposite direction.

Updated documents

It is very important to keep all the papers of the vehicle up to date, with special attention to the technical review. Keep them handy and thus avoid fines for the absence or expiration of these.

Tires with adequate pressure

The air of the tires will depend on the conditions in which the trip is made, either with the number of people or the luggage that goes in the vehicle. However, Goodyear remembers the importance of checking the safety equipment before leaving and has the spare tire ready and in optimum condition.

With these nine points to consider, the vehicle will not be a matter of concern to have fun this next long weekend.
