Two Simple Rules: 1) Wear a helmet 2) Wear It Correctly.
1) Wearing a helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by as much as 85 percent.
2) The helmet should be level on the head and fastened snugly under the chin, with the strap forming a “V” below the ears. Helmets shouldn’t slip to the front, back, or side of the head. This exposes the skull and increases the risk of injury. Extremely loose or unbuckled straps can allow the helmet to completely fall off the head in a crash leaving the skull with no protection at all.
The Wasatch County Health Department has helmets available for our cost from Bell Sports.
