If you’ve got a kiddo about to graduate to two wheels (or four), you’ll want to make sure his head is protected.
Did you know many fire departments and hospitals offer custom fitted helmets at very low cost? It’s true!
You can get them from East Pierce Fire and Rescue for just 7.00 Monday-Friday between 8AM-5PM simply by stopping by the headquarters station in Bonney Lake. Not your stomping grounds? There is a whole list of locations for my Pierce County friends below! Do call first, as this is a pdf from Multicare, and I’m not sure how recently it was updated.
If you’re one of my Thurston County readers, you can find information here along with a whole raft of other resources, thanks to Safe Kids Thurston County and the Child Care Action Council.
Here’s a list of bike helmet locations for those of you in South King County (again, this is an undated pdf, so do call first). Most all of these locations can also tell you how to get free or loaner life jackets and give you information about free car seat safety checks and safety presentations for your school or playgroup. Your kids might also enjoy the free safety activities and games here.
Who knew a deal could be both cheap and priceless?
