Bike Helmet Program

 

Did You Know?

  • Bike accidents send more kids to the hospital emergency room than any other sport.
  • 98 children ages 19 and under died from biking-related injuries in 2013.
  • Bicyclist deaths occur most often between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.
  • The majority of fatally injured bicyclists were not wearing helmets.

Kids Helmets Available

 

Wearing a properly-fitted helmet dramatically decreases your risk of a head injury while riding a bicycle. The Marysville Fire District has custom-fitted bicycle and multi-sport/skate helmets available for a suggested $10 donation, through a partnership with Safe Kids Snohomish County. Helmets are available between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. at any of our fire stations. Firefighters may be unavailable due to emergency calls.

 

A helmet will only protect your child if it’s actually worn and properly fitted every time they ride.

 

 

 

Here’s how to properly adjust a helmet:

 

 

Step 1: Eyes

 

Put the helmet on your head and look up.

You should see the bottom rim of the helmet.

The helmet should be level on the head and within two fingers of the eyebrow.

Step 2: Ears

 

Make the straps form a "V" under your ears.

They should be tight but comfortable.

Step 3: Mouth

 

Open your mouth as wide as you can. Does the helmet hug your head?

If not, tighten the straps.
