What to do with an old helmet?

Put it on a shelf to stare at during the winter or ask if anyone needs one for their spring weekend motorcycle course.

Yep, a couple years ago i collected helmets from here to donate to the FD for training.
Only received like 2 if i remember correctly and they were older.

If they are newer style helmets, i could dig back into this and see if training wants them again or not. But with COVID they may be a little timid on accepting such things currently .. if there is a few people wanting to donate i could re open this up and investigate?

I have an old shoei rf1000 you can have if they need some.

Give it to one of those VR gaming geek guys so they can turn it into a VR helmet. Then if they get all dizzy and fall down they've got it covered.

Ski Patrol have been teaching helmet removal as we are EMS on the hill. ABC`s and the possibility on vomiting.
Admittedly Ski Patrol are the exception to the rule as it is Advanced First Aid.
#1 priority After scene survey, Airway.
I used to teach helmet removal when I was teaching BTLS. (The name has changed to International Trauma Life Support)At Toronto Ambulance HQ. Eastern Avenue.
Which is open to Advanced First Aiders. Fire Fighters.
Not required as you say, for the layperson.
Required for HCP. (Health Care Provider)

P.S. You did a fantastic job when you moved my Girlfriends bike. A few years ago. Highly recommended.

Thanks .. but after almost 15 years into moving bikes around, faces and names become a blur to me.

Cheers.

I have 2 helmets that I will be happy to donate. They are not new but one is recent and another one 4-5 years old. If you will want to do this then I'm in.
