PD's Helmet Hero Received a New Helmet

The Milton Police Department's helmet hero, Calle, received a new helmet yesterday, courtesy of Street Smart! She also received more goodies from Dave's Ace Hardware, Piggly Wiggly, The Milton House, and Red Rooster as supporters of their helmet initiative.

Last week she was struck by a car while riding her bike on Madison Avenue near the Middle School.  She hit her head on the roadway, but was wearing a helmet.  The only abrasions were on her helmet.

Safety Tip: If a helmet is involved in a collision, it must be replaced. 

Thanks to Mercy for their support!
