safe way to wear a helmet diagram

  • Teach children how to call 911 and provide their address to the emergency operator.
  • Review pedestrian and bicycle rules with your children and insist that they always wear helmets when riding.
  • Don't keep spare keys in your mailbox or under a doormat. Instead, consider placing a key in a small tin and burying it where it can be easily accessed by a family member.
  • Install outdoor lighting or motion lights in dark entryways, near back doors, and above your driveway.
  • Protect your doors and windows by ensuring the wood in the frames is in good shape and free of rot, so they're not easy to pry through.
  • Register your child in a local child identification program.
