Helmet Fittings

Summer is here and so are bicycle helmets! Bronson Children's Hospital, Bronson Trauma Services, and Safe Kids Kalamazoo County are offering reduced cost helmets.

Whatever summer activity you or your child participates in, learning basic safety and using proper equipment may help prevent injuries. Appropriate equipment is critical to being safe. Poorly functioning or improperly adjusted equipment is a frequent cause of injuries. Helmets that are improperly sized can also cause injury.

Preventative equipment such as helmets can prevent disastrous and even fatal injuries.
