On May 4 our firm will host a Child Safety Helmet Giveaway at Ida Belle Young Park in Montgomery. The safety event is part of our commitment to help educate the public about brain injury. Many people are not aware that each year about 300,000 children go to the emergency room because of injuries received in bicycle accidents. Data show that non-helmeted riders are 14 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than helmeted riders. We have enlisted the trained technicians who are with the Think First Alabama initiative and Children’s Alabama to properly fit and distribute the helmets at the events the firm sponsors.
The helmets are free to those who register in advance and while supplies last. We believe that these events help educate the public on safety issues. They make sure that folks know not only to use helmets, but also how to use them and what types to use. If you want more information on these events contact Helen Taylor, our public relations coordinator, or Wendi Lewis, the firm’s communications director, at 800-898-2034 or by email at Helen.Taylor@beasleyallen.com or Wendi.Lewis@beasleyallen.com.
