A new page on Petzl‘s website has been created to help encourage folks to think twice before leaving their helmet at home.

The page, called Tales from the Edge – Helmet Close Calls, will feature stories submitted by folks who have survived some really close calls by wearing their helmet.

So far the stories that have been submitted are primarily climbing related. Surely cavers out there have a few interesting tales of their own to share and help represent the activity.

As an incentive for sharing your story, each month one of the entries will be selected to be featured on Facebook and Twitter. The submitter of the story will receive a brand new Petzl helmet to replace their damaged one (US and Canada only).

To submit your helmet close call visit the Tales from the Edge – Helmet Close Calls page and enter your story in the comments section at the bottom.
