  4. 4. Check the sledge<br />Many sledding accidents tend to happen due to oversight when the sledding equipment is not checked properly.<br />Equipment malfunction can lead to accidents if the sledge is not checked properly from all angles<br />Make sure that you personally check the sledge your child is getting onto before you check yours<br />
  5. 5. Wear suitable attire<br />24ProtectPlus requests you to dress appropriately when you go sledding<br />Long robes or loose clothing is not the most appropriate attire for sledding<br />Make sure that you are wearing comfortable but fitted clothes so that there is no loose ends hanging<br />In addition to that, wear adequate warm clothes, gloves and cap to protect yourself from the cold<br />
  6. 6. Protective gear<br />24ProtectPlus understand that you want to make a style statement but make sure you wear proper protective gear while sledding<br />Helmets and boots are as essential to sledding as a seat belt is to a car<br />This is applicable even when you slip down a short downhill slope<br />Remember that even a small injury on the head can cause irreparable harm at times<br />
  7. 7. Check the slope<br />Don’t show off and get too ambitious<br />Always check the slope for obstructions before you take it on with a sledge<br />Walk down the slope and back again to see if there are any obstructions and whether you can maneuver them or not<br />
  8. 8. Train<br />You may have the spirit of adventure in you …but being foolhardy will not get you anywhere<br />If you are new at the sport, get some training and understand the tricks before you take on a slope on your own<br />Start with smaller and easier slopes before you attempt a relatively more difficult one<br />
  9. 9. Side tip off<br />Learn how to manage an emergency situation when you seem to be out of control<br />Tip off and roll to one side<br />This is the best way to get off a sledge while it is in motion<br />
  10. 10. Avoid water bodies<br />Some people like to take on water bodies like a pond or a lake when it is frozen<br />This is probably the most dangerous aspect of sledding<br />If the top layer of the ice is not thick enough, it can give way and you might land in frozen water<br />
  11. 11. Sled during the day<br />Sledding is a daytime activity<br />Make sure that you never attempt sledding in the dark, even if you are otherwise adept and expert in sledding<br />
  12. 12. Kids wait impatiently for the snow to take their sleds out!<br />But make sure you follow these tips from 24ProtectPlus to make sledding safe and enjoyable!<br />
