County to give away free bicycle helmets

Posted on December 6, 2018 by Staff reports


The Santa Rosa County Department of Emergency Management, located at 4499 Pine Forest Road in Milton, will offer free bike helmets for adults and children from 3-6 p.m., Monday December 17 and Tuesday, December 18 and from 1-4 p.m.


The catch?  Recipients must be fitted in person to receive a helmet.

Wearing a bike helmet reduces the odds of head injury by 50 percent and head/face/neck injury by 33 percent, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety/Highway Loss Data Institute.
