Adhering to the data that shows that promoting the use of helmets and making helmets available is the most effective approach to reducing head injuries related to bicycle crashes.

Through a collaborative effort with The Injury Free Coalition for Kids and CalWORKs we provided bicycle safety helmet educational information, demonstrations on proper fitting and distributed over 450 helmets to low-income children. We also provided community education at a number of community health fairs, providing bicycle safety and helmet education, demonstrations on proper helmet fitting, and conducted a targeted helmet distribution at Euclid Elementary School.
