Heartfelt Condolences

Posted by 2 on

My heart and prayers go out to the family and friends of Erika Lamb, the 16 year old who died from her head injuries while skiing at Blue Mountain. Although she was wearing a safety helmet, the accident was so serious that even her helmet couldn't save her. Unfortunately some people will use this as an excuse or justification for not wearing a helmet. Please remember that although helmets cannot 100% guarantee your safety, they are still the best method we have of protecting your head!

Posted by 2 on

I will chalk this experience up to a temporary lapse in judgment on my part. For someone who preaches safety on a regular basis, I know better than to take unnecessary risks especially when participating in active sports.

Kids these days are smarter about helmet safety than a lot of grownups. But this is where the problem lies: When kids get older, they will often resort to the same behaviour as their parents. Hence, teens who ride...

Play It Safe!

Posted by 2 on

Mother Nature is playing tricks with us this year by prolonging winter but, believe it or not, spring and summer are just around the corner! So it won’t be long before our kids are begging us to pump up the bike tires and search for their rollerblades, skateboards and scooters. Now it’s my turn to remind you to check the fit of their safety helmets as well and enforce the simple rule: NO helmet = NO bikes, tricycles, rollerblades, skateboards or scooters! In other words, NO helmet means NO riding toys! Why is it so important to play it safe?...

No Helmet? What were you thinking?
