Bike Safety; Making a Difference in Your Community
June 19 @ 10:15 - 12:15Free
Presented by: Diane Lee, Bike Safety Educator, MIEMSS EMSC
The presentation will cover the importance of wearing a bike helmet correctly on every ride. Head injuries are the leading cause of injury and death to bicycles, and helmets are a proven safety measure. Attendees will participate in a hands on demonstration of correct helmet fit which is appropriate to use with all age groups. Presenter will review the resources made available throughout the state by the MIEMSS Bike Safety Grant provided by the Maryland Highway Safety Office, including display and presentation resources available to borrow, as well as just in time training supplies and take home reminders available from the MIEMSS office in Baltimore. Examples of supplies will be available for participants to view and take home in small quantities, with instructions on how to order additional copies if needed, including posters, magnetic helmet reminder signs, and helmet fit and safety check lists. Additional online resources including PSAs, training video, poster PDFs, and sample bike safety social media posts will be highlighted. This presentation will share safe methods for both normal and contactless distribution.
