May 14 2018 Bicycle Safety at South O’Brien

The O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office has worked with the South O’Brien Elementary School to provide bike safety for over 25 years.  Primghar Community School wanted to have their third grade students receive proper bike safety and reached out to Sheriff Michael Anderson (retired) to help them.  What started with Primghar Community School has continued with South O’Brien.  Deputies go into the classroom and give instructions on proper bike safety and using correct hand signals.  In late 1990’s the Primghar Ambulance team approached the Primghar Jaycees to provide bike helmets for all third grade students.  The helmets are purchased through Sheas True Value in Primghar and as part of Bike Safety Day each third grade student is fitted by Primghar Ambulance team members with a helmet.  This year, Deputy Bradley Stevens and Deputy Timothy Rohrbaugh taught the bike safety class.  The O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office is proud to be a part of this great program.

Pictured below are a few pictures from the day.
