If you happened to see a Sheldon Community Ambulance Team ambulance parked outside East Elementary School last Wednesday, August 28th, or outside Sheldon Middle School this Wednesday, September 4th, don’t worry, they weren’t there due to illness or injury.

On Wednesday August 28th, SCAT members stood watch near the bicycle racks at East Elementary School, talking to each student who arrived on a bicycle, scooter or blades, and who was wearing a helmet. SCAT Director Kevin Miller tells KIWA that each student who wore their helmet proudly was offered a free ice cream certificate to Casey’s General Store. Miller says just 8 of the 24 students who were on bikes, scooters or blades was wearing a helmet. That’s just 33.3-percent helmet use at the grade school level in Sheldon.

On Wednesday September 4th, SCAT members conducted a similar operation at the Sheldon Middle School. Miller says that 3 of the 5 middle school moped riders were wearing helmets, while just 1 of the 18 students who arrived at school by bicycle was wearing a helmet, for a total of 4 out of 23, or 17.4-percent at the middle school.
