Give the gift of safety this winter season

As winter approaches, you may find yourself driving in the snow, skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, or giving gifts this season. Here are some tips for giving the gift of safety for the holidays: 

  • If you are giving a bike, scooter, skateboard, snowboard or skis, remember to give a helmet too! 
  • If you are giving a toy to a child, check the warning labels and instructions to make sure it’s age-appropriate. 
  • If you have a friend or loved one who owns a gun and want to give them a locking device, you can get 10-15% off storage devices or lockboxes at participating retailers by mentioning Public Health or Lock It Up.   

Enjoy a safe and healthy winter season! Read more.
