We support wheeled sport safety through a number of activities...
Annual Health & Safety Fair
Each spring, our annual Child Health & Safety Fair is held at a Livingston County school. Local agencies/organizations provide interactive stations for participation by children, adults, and families. These popular interactive stations encourage discussion on several safety topics, including: occupant, wheeled, pedestrian, and playground safety. Safety experts have commented that some of the best conversations they have had with participants occur at the fair, because participants retain the safety information while having fun.
When children in Livingston County are caught wearing a helmet by local law enforcement, they are entered into a drawing for a gift certificate at the end of the summer. The winner is announced in September.
Wheeled Sport Rodeos
The Wheeled Sport Rodeos are held at recreation centers throughout Livingston County in conjunction with Law Enforcement and the Department of Health. They consist of helmet checks, a wheeled rodeo for the children to test their skills, and education on:
A limited number of helmets are available for replacement.
Wheeled Sport Safety Contest
The Community Safety Committee sponsors our annual "Safety on Wheels" Contest for all Livingston County students in Pre-K through 6th grade. Entry forms for the contest are delivered to each school approx. 6-8 weeks before our Health & Safety Fair. The contest consists of either a coloring entry or writing entry – depending upon grade level. A special award ceremony is conducted to present a new bicycle and properly fitted helmet to each first place winner. Properly fitted bicycle helmets are awarded to the second place winners.
*NOTE* We are seeking donors to help with the purchase of new bikes. Please contact Barb at the CCE-Livingston office if you are interested in contributing. Your support is appreciated.
