  • Exercise to increase strength and improve balance to help prevent falls.
  • Wear a seat belt every time you drive or ride in a car.
  • Wear a helmet while riding bicycles, motorcycles, OHVs/ATVs, snowmobiles, and during sport­ing activities.
  • Wear a helmet when riding a horse or participating in rodeo events.
