@TorontoPolice Bike Helmet Giveaway at St.Francis Xavier School | P.C. Peter De Quintal


we’re here at St. Francis Xavier, and we’re giving away 525 bike helmets… basically we’re giving out a helmet to every student here in the school today. We need kids know that they need to wear a helmet.. We’re becoming such a cycling-friendly city, that we need our youth to get that messaging across that they need to wear a helmet at a young age, so if we start them young, and we give out all the helmets, we’re giving them the most important safety device while cycling is a helmet. Let me show you how to put on the helmet, and the key to putting on a helmet is 2-V-1… You understand that? I’m going to show you how it goes… okay… so we’re to put on the helmet… so the key is 2-V-1, so two fingers from the base of your helmet to your eyebrows.. we got that? the ‘V’, so the straps meet there, perfectly, and then one finger underneath, so that it fits properly… we got this 2-V-1? (audience: “yes!”) excellent… thank you… what we need is for parents to understand that their children need to wear a helmet. It’s a safety issue for them, and it’s also the law… So part of that is, it’s not necessarily about how fast they’re going or what they may have…. they could be doing no speed at all, and fall off their bike, and that helmet may prevent them from getting a potential serious injury like a concussion or whatnot… children always need to wear a helmet, each and every time they’re on a bicycle… remember kids safety first, when you’re out cycling… ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET!!!
