The City of Burlington issued the following tips to help ensure safety while tobogganing:
Toboggan during daylight hours, not when it is dark.
Toboggan when the hill is snow covered, not when it is icy or bare.
Check the hill and make sure it is free of obstacles and toboggan in the designated area.
Wear a helmet designed for winter sports.
Use a toboggan that is in good shape and has brakes and steering.
Avoid wearing scarves or any clothing that could get caught in a toboggan and cause injury.
Always sit down and face-forward on a toboggan.
Do not build jumps or other obstacles on the toboggan hill.
Walk up the side of the hill and leave the middle open for others coming down the hill.
If you fall off of your toboggan, move out of the way to avoid being hit.
