Extractions: Please read on... Regarding Helmets. The Sergeant wrote his First Sergeant telling him of his experience. "I'm passing to you my experience over the last couple of days in hopes that maybe it can be passed on to others and possibly prevent someone else's siblings from receiving life threatening injuries. "My two sons, 9 and 11, are usually pretty safety conscious. When they take off on their bikes or roller blades they almost always grab their helmets and throw them on. But, on the other hand, when they're in a hurry, they sometimes do not. Well, we as parents try to catch those incidents and immediately make the correction. Sometimes we get complacent and don't even notice. "Well, Wednesday evening right after school, we took off on our usual roller blading excursion around the neighborhood (Without helmets this time) and sure enough, my youngest, Trent, got his blades caught up with his brother's, got turned around and landed right on the back of his head. I'm amazed that he wasn't knocked unconscious. He was hurting pretty bad and had blood coming from his right ear and nose. Sure, kids fall and bump their head, but this was giving me a serious message to take him to the hospital.

The crowd really got into Lee Brinkman's performance that attempted numerous high jumps ranging from 360s to no arms and legs with very high air. At the end of the show all spectators were eligible for safety equipment door prizes paid for by Culver and Pizza Hut. KIKC radio donated on air advertising that also included an interview with Lee that was aired on Friday and Saturday mornings. Prizes won included six helmets and 4 sets of elbow and kneepads. In addition the performers handed out numerous stickers to the kids and even signed a few autographs. We are planning some more skate park events for next year and will be focussing on a skate board event for sure. The message was very clear that wearing safety gear is not only important but also cool. If nothing else occurs maybe more kids will recognize the safety risks of blading, boarding and biking and wear equipment which will minimize any serious injuries. Any promotion we do at Millennium Park will always be designed to promote and increase safety.

Extractions: HOT TIPS FOR SAFE FUN IN THE SUN Summer months are a time for water recreational activities. But where summer and water are combined, children are especially vulnerable. Drowning is the leading cause of death for Los Angeles County youngsters from one to four years old. Of the 117 drowning deaths last year, 21 were children less than five years old. Two-thirds of these children drowned in backyard pools. It takes just a few seconds for a child to drown or nearly drown. Leaving children unattended in a few inches of water can have deadly results. In recent years, we have also seen an increase in the number of elderly persons who drowned during warm weather months. Last year, 26 people over the age of 65 drowned, compared to 15 who drowned in 1996. Many of these deaths occurred in spas and swimming pools. Seniors with heart conditions, high blood pressure or who experience dizziness and equilibrium difficulties should use caution when wading or swimming.
