Are you Ready to Roll? We have helmets available!

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost 100 children
under the age of 15 were killed in a bike-related incident in 2006. This makes bike
incidents one of the most frequent causes of injury-related death in young children.
Bicycle helmets are 85%-88% effective in protecting bicyclists from head
and brain injuries in serious incidents. Therefore, the best way to protect children
from head injuries is to make sure they wear a helmet every time they ride a bike.
Helmets can reduce the risk of severe brain injuries by 88 percent; however,
only 15 to 25 percent of children 14 and under usually wear a bicycle helmet.
At Marysville Fire District we understand how important helmets and bike safety
education is for families. We have responded to far too many calls where a bicyclist
has been struck without a helmet.
Stop by any Marysville Fire District Fire Station between the hours of 8:00am and
7:00pm to get your custom fitted helmet. As long as the crew is "in-house" they
will be able to assist you. All we ask is a $10 donation in order to maintain this
fabulous Safe Kids Snohomish County Program.
