While sledding is a fun way to enjoy the winter weather and spend some time playing outside, we also want to remind you and your family to be safe while sledding. Here are some easy sledding rules to follow this winter:
- Avoid sledding in crowded areas as to not hurt yourself or anyone else
- Keep sledders away from motor vehicles
- Children must be supervised by an adult at all times
- Consider wearing helmets to avoid head injuries
- Dress in many layers so you stay warm
- Sled feet first to avoid injury and to maintain control of the sled
If your child happens to get injured, bring them to the Pediatric Urgent Care of Northern Colorado. Illness and injury don’t take a day off, so we are open 365 days a year!
