ATV Safety Program Geared to Kids
 North Carolina Division of the American Trauma Society are sponsoring the Community ATV Safety Program for Young Riders on Saturday, May 8, from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Instruction and information are geared towards 8- to 14-year-olds who own/ride all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). The program will be held at the picnic shelters beside the Watauga County Parks & Recreation Office, and parents are encouraged to attend with their children.

The registration fee is $5 per person. Class is limited to 35 participants and their parents. To register, contact Karee Teague, Watauga County 4-H, at (828) 264-3061. The registration deadline is Wednesday, April 21, 2004.

The National 4-H Council developed the Community ATV Safety Program, and the program includes a rider handbook, fun activities, demonstrations, a basic first aid kit, free lunch and a free T-shirt for each participant!

Volunteers from the Boone Fire Department, Watauga Rescue Squad and Watauga County Fire Marshal & Emergency Management will teach the ATV safety lessons. The lessons will cover basic ATV facts, personal protective equipment, what size ATV for you, and the pre-ride ATV check. Staff from Watauga Medical Center will help the participants make a basic first aid kit. Riding demonstrations will cover handling curves, riding on hills, stopping on a dime, obstacles, riding strategies and eleven commandments for safe riding. Participants will NOT be riding ATVs; t he program will consist of demonstrations and information ONLY.

The Watauga SAFE KIDS Coalition received a $1,000 grant from the North Carolina Division of the American Trauma Society to implement the Community ATV Safety Program for Young Riders.

Last year, more than 15 people in North Carolina died in ATV crashes, and more than half of them were children under age 14. ATV pediatric victims are younger, are more severely injured and stay hospitalized longer than the average trauma patient. The goal of this Community ATV Safety Program is to prevent traumatic injuries and death to children on ATVs.


For more information, contact Erica Mann, Coordinator-Watauga SAFE KIDS Coalition at (828) 264-0860. Watauga SAFE KIDS Coalition and Watauga County Healthy Carolinians are community projects of Watauga Medical Center.
