BIKE AND SKI HELMETS
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.
Free kids helmets
Children's bicycle and multi-sport helmets are available for a small donation at all fire stations in the Fire District 1 service area. Multi-sport helmets and can be used for biking, skating, riding a scooter and skateboarding.
Children must be accompanied by their parents to receive a helmet.
Suggested donation amounts are $7 for bike helmets and $10 for multi-sport helmets. Your donation covers the cost of the helmet.
Helmet fittingTo 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.
Ski helmets will be available on a seasonal basis and only at Headquarters, 12425 Meridian Ave. S, Everett WA 98208. For more information on ski helmets, contact Kim Schroeder at (425) 551-1254.
