Bike Safety Project Grant

This Bike Safety Project grant is funded by the Maryland Highway Safety Office with a focus on Bike Helmet Safety and correct helmet use.  The project is using the networking established by both MIEMSS EMS for Children and Safe Kids Maryland to work to reduce the number of significant head injury death in Maryland due to bike crashes. The grant coordinates production of new educational materials, quarterly social media communications, development of new partnership and reaffirming existing ones, and distribution of bike helmets in 12 locations in Maryland. Three additional locations and partners will be added as gaps in geographic distribution are determined and appropriate strategically located partners are identified. 


Helmets are the single most effective safety device known to reduce 

head injury and death from bike crashes.
