Bikes, skateboards, scooters, and skates are all great ways to get children outside and physically active. They also make popular children's holiday gifts. If you are thinking about giving one to a young person this holiday, don't forget an important piece of safety equipment: a helmet. A properly fitted helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by 85% and possibly save a life. |
A helmet should be replaced if it no longer fits the rider, has been in a crash, or shows signs of damage inside or out. For more information about helmet safety and proper fit visit, www.sccphd.org/traffic.
