There have been a rise in bike accidents this summer, involving both adults and children. Specifically, injuries that could be preventable have been on the rise.

Last week Rishelle Elthun, MPH, Child Advocacy Progam Manager, brought the New Glarus Area EMS and the New Glarus Police Department some bike helmets and gun locks.

The helmets and gun locks were donated by the SCRTAC-South Central Regional Trauma Advisory Council. The Council donated 15 gun locks and 10 bike helmets to just under 50 organizations in this region.

Eithun noted that, "During these unprecedented times families have a lot going on and we wanted to do our part to help reduce preventable injuries."

For more information, contact the New Glarus Area EMS at (608) 527-5067 or New Glarus Police Department at (608) 527-2145.
