SLEDDING SAFETY TIPS
•Dress children properly for outdoor activities. Several thin layers keep children dry and warm. Don't forget warm boots, gloves or mittens, and a hat.
•Stay away from roads.
•Supervise children while sledding.
•Keep young children separated from older children.
•Sledding feet first or sitting up, instead of lying down head-first, may prevent head injuries.
•Consider having your child wear a helmet while sledding.
•Sleds should be structurally sound and free of sharp edges.
•Sled slopes should be free of obstructions such as trees or fences; be covered in snow, not ice; not too steep (slope of less than 30 degrees), and end with a flat runoff.
•Avoid sledding in crowded areas.
