Helmet Safety

Your helmet is the most important and effective safety device available to reduce head injury and/or death from bicycle accidents.


Not all helmets are the same.  Bicycle helmets are not made for other activities.  Bicycle helmets are only good for one crash and then they must be replaced.
Do not wear helmets when playing on playground equipment.  Helmet straps can get caught on equipment and cause choking.

 

Make sure your helmet is the right size and that it fits properly.  Follow these steps to fit your helmet.  Use this checklist to make sure your helmet fits properly.
