Safe Summer Bike Helmet Program
Safe Kids Southern Tier New York (SKSTNY) is excited to announce that we are kicking off the Safe Summer Bike Helmets program in Cattaraugus, Allegany, and Chautauqua Counties. Local police departments and EMS agencies will be giving children a free bicycle helmet if they are seen riding without one or reward them with a $5 Amazon gift card if they are seen wearing a helmet while riding.
 
It is important to remember that kids should wear a helmet when riding a scooter, skating, skateboarding or biking. It is the single most effective safety device available to reduce head injury and death from bike crashes.
 
We were able to partner with Planet Marcus and have a video regarding the importance of a wearing a helmet and fitting tips. I would like to thank 6-year old, Marcus Ethan Tom for his dedication to the project and his willingness to share the safety messages with his peers, as well as his awesome parents Murphy and Sharon Tom for the creation of the video.
