Bike accidents are the second leading cause of serious injury in school-age children. But biking is fun and healthy. We want kids and families to ride their bikes as safely, and as often, as possible.

Helmet fitting

To be protective, helmets must cover a child's forehead and fit snugly.


Firefighters will make sure the helmet fits correctly, whether you get it from us or bring in your own helmets. 

Helmets are available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., whenever firefighters are in the station. Firefighters may be unavailable if responding to emergency calls.
