Motorcycle riders, may we have your attention please!The Installation Safety Management Office invites all current and future motorcycle riders to attend the 2013 Motorcycle Safety Forum.
This important event will be held on May 1, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Fort Detrick Community Activities Center, Building 1529.
Multiple vendors will showcase motorcycle displays including the latest Personal Protective Equipment. Also, there will be a safe riding demonstration by the “Ride Like A Pro” motorcycle group, followed by an inspection of motorcycles before the group ride, which will take place from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m.
In fiscal year 2012, the U.S. Army and the state of Maryland lost too many civilians and Soldiers to motorcycle accidents. The Installation Safety Management Office is committed to working with military and civilian riders to reduce these accident numbers in FY13.
Together, we can address the root causes of reckless behavior and poor risk management. As motorcycle riding continues to gain popularity within the Fort Detrick community, we must foster proactive mentorship programs.
These programs will provide riders with the opportunity to work together, maximize rider skills, and reduce accidents.
