Bike Town

The Douglas SAFE KIDS Coalition will be featuring Bike Town, sponsored by Liberty Mutual Insurance Company. Bike Town is a bike course where children 14 and under may bring their own bikes to ride the course. Helmets are mandatory, but new, cool helmets may be purchased with a $10 cash donation to SAFE KIDS. Associated activities include:

  • The Douglasville Police Department will have their Bike and Motor Patrol assisting with this event and educating children on safety, laws and importance of good safety habits
  • The Fire Safety House will be on site, with a representative of the Fire Department to teach children what to do in the event of a home fire, and to offer fire safety activity books.
  • Child ID Program where parents will receive a free Liberty Mutual child identification kit. The kit allows the parents to register their child’s personal information, including gender, height, weight, hair color, blood type, distinguishing marks, allergies & medical information. The kit also includes a place to secure a recent photo, and 10 blocks to print each of the child’s fingerprints using an enclosed ink strip.
  • Sports Safety station with sports safety games sponsored by Gable Sporting Goods
  • SAFETY PUP, sponsored by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, will be helping with the event

Douglas SAFE KIDS Coalition is a network of the National SAFE KIDS Campaign, a non-profit campaign dedicated solely to the prevention of unintentional childhood injury – the number one killer of children ages 14 and under. DSK is a collaborative effort of police officers, deputies, fire fighters, medical professionals, community service organizations, school teachers, and local business partners. The Douglas County Board of Health is the lead agency.

Pertinent facts include:

  • Bicycle Safety: More than 500,000 people are hurt in bicycle accidents each year; and of the 600 bicyclists killed annually in traffic crashes, 90 percent were not wearing a helmet
  • Sports Safety: More than 3.5 million children ages 14 and under sufer medically treated sports injuries each year. Many of these injuries occur during practices, and many are related to improper use or lack of proper safety gear
  • Missing Children: According to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, more than 2,000 children a day were reported missing last year, and only 2 percent of those children who were abducted had fingerprints taken and personal information recorded before they were lost.
