Welcome To Allen County Public Health Website!

Warmer weather has everyone out and on the move.  Do you Move Safe?

 

Move Safe is the Allen County traffic safety initiative dedicated to making our community safer for biking and walking. My favorite Move Safe tip is using our eyes.  Using our eyes to be aware of our surroundings, looking where we are going, and making eye contact with others on the road are some of the best things we can do to be safe whether we’re walking, bicycling or driving.

 

Speaking of using our eyes – keep your eyes open for more Move Safe tips around the community this spring and summer.

 

 

In good health,

Kathy Luhn, Health Commissioner
