DIAL 911  FOR EMERGENCIES ONLY.  In most areas you can call 311 for city service information and non emergency calls.  In some areas you can call 211 for general information about a variety of topics.  Check to see if your area has started either 211 or 311 help lines.

 

This page is for general safety tips that pertains to Fire, EMS and Police together and items of public interest.  It will also include general holiday safety tips.

 
General Safety Tips
 

1.  When riding bicycles, do not do the stunts that you see on YouTube or certain reality TV Shows.  They are extremely stupid and dangerous and you could get hurt.  I donít think you or your parents will want to spend time in your local Emergency Room when you get hurt.  Also remember that the stunts you see in extreme sports competitions are performed only by trained and experienced professionals, unless you are a highly trained professional athlete, you should not be doing those stunts.

 

2.  When riding a bicycle in any street, check with your local authorities as to riding with or against traffic.

 

BICYCLE SAFETY TIPS

 

1.  Get your children into the habit of wearing a bike helmet early.  Have them start wearing them as soon as they start riding tricycles or riding on the back of a bike.

 

2.  Do not ride on the handle bars and only ride two on a bike if the seat is big enough for two.

 

3.  Parents should wear helmets themselves.

 

4.  Some states, counties, and cities have laws or local ordinances that require children under 16 or 18 to wear them while riding bicycles, tricycles or scooters.  Laws vary from state to state, so do the penalties for violating them.  Check with your state or local government to see what if any laws exist in your area.

 

5.  Establish household rules for the use of helmets.  Do not allow your children to ride their bikes without a helmet.

 

6.  Praise and reward your children for wearing them.

 

7.  Try to encourage your childrens friends to wear them.

 

8.  Make sure helmets fit your children properly.  It should fit securely at the top of the head and cover the forehead.  It should not move around or slide down over the eyes.  When it slides back and forth, the helmet does not correctly protect the forehead.  The chin strap should be adjusted to fit snugly, but not so tight that it hurts the chin or irritates the skin.

 

9.  Once a child has an accident while wearing the helmet, it should be tested or thrown away and replaced before the child is allowed to resume riding a bicycle.

 

Accidents can happen at anytime and no one can predict them when they do wear one during every ride.
