Need this on paper?
If you need the above resources on paper, we have a free packet of materials that we call our
Toolkit for Helmet Promotion Programs. It comes with a CD that has a complete copy of our website. It is printed on paper
with recycled content. It has many but not all of the materials listed above, along with duplicating masters of our
If you are working on a helmet safety program or assembling a resource folder of materials for future classroom use,
please send us an email with your postal mailing address
and we will send you a Toolkit.
We will acknowledge your email and tell you when we are mailing the Toolkit, normally within a day. We don't use your
email address for anything except that reply, but if you would rather not use it at all, just pick up a dull pencil and
drop us a postcard or note with your mailing address to:
Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute
4611 7th Street South
Arlington, VA 22204-1419
If you would rather not send a mailing address, you can just print out the materials above or download the files.
Everything we have in our Toolkit is on the website. Everything. It's just not on paper. If you can't wait for snail
mail, here is the entire file we print out to send to you in .pdf format
. Add the pamphlet
files above and you have it all!
You are free to duplicate any of the materials in the Toolkit or on our web pages
for school or other nonprofit
use provided that the material may not be sold or incorporated into material that is for sale and may not be used in
presentations for which a charge is made to the participant.
We do not charge for our materials, and do not send you anything suggesting a donation to make you feel guilty, either.
We find that asking people for money complicates things and reduces our outreach, and people who are going to donate
something to support our work will do it anyway.
Would you like our email newsletter?
We produce a periodic newsletter on helmet developments and send it around
by email. We send one when there is news to report, not every week or month. It's free, of course. If you would like us
to add you to the newsletter list, please send us an email
Are we missing anything?
We are an advocacy organization with a long-range perspective, so teachers and community
educators are our favorite visitors and we will do anything we can to help you find what you need. If you see something
missing that would be useful for your classroom or demonstration, please send us an email
may or may not be able to add it to our site, but we certainly want to try! If you find helmet materials elsewhere that
are not on our list, please let us know about that as well so we can add a link. Other teachers led us to some of the
items above in just that way.
