Healthy Sandy and the Sandy Fire Department are working together to begin offering safety tickets. As firefighters are out in the community, if they see kids participating in healthy, safe exercise activities, such as wearing a helmet while they are biking or skating, they can offer the kids a safety ticket. The safety tickets can then be redeemed for small awards and prizes from local participating businesses.
Helmet Give Away
Healthy Sandy has given away hundreds of bike helmets and subsidized the costs of thousands of helmets. Each year, at one of the "Family Night at the Skate Park" events, Healthy Sandy gives away 25 helmets and subsidizes the costs for other helmets to be given away. Additional helmets are given away or subsidized to groups such as the Sandy Club for Boys and Girls.
