We start this page with the key message:

The use of a helmet, wrist, elbow and knee protection is strongly recommended!

 

Abrasions. Our Flying Nurses ► have seen dozens of them. Maybe not too serious, but the nurses always notice that the injured usually didn’t wear protection. Nobody plans to crash or fall. Yet it happens. A crack in the road, a streetcar rail sticking out, someone bumping in to you...

Every year we see little accidents happen at the FNS. Statistics show that after abrasions wrist injuries are most commonly seen during the FNS.

Helmets, wrist- elbow- and knee protectors can prevent a lot of injuries. Particularly a helmet is an important safety-feature. A drop on the head can lead to severe and lasting injury, even death! Be wise and wear a good skate helmet. The volunteers (blockers and nurses) of the FNS set a good example.

And no, we cannot stress this enough:

The use of a helmet, wrist, elbow and knee protection is strongly recommended!

 

If you join the Friday Night Skate, it’s smart to:
- Come in time (before 20.30 hrs), otherwise we’ve already left
- Be able to brake
- Be in good shape
- Think of your safety and the safety of other skaters and traffic
- Keep to the right and pass skaters on the left
- Stick to things you can manage, don’t overestimate yourself
- Give way to blockers and nurses
- Keep your cool
- Warn blockers and nurses in case of an accident
- Bring a drink, there’s not always an opportunity to buy one during stops
- Relax and enjoy the tour. You'll make us happy if you are having a good time.
