Discounted helmets

The Lake Stevens fire department is offering ski and snowboard helmets at the discounted cost of $25 each, which includes a custom fitting. Available sizes include small, medium and large; and they will fit young children through most adults.

The helmets are provided by Safe Kids Snohomish County. The cost of the helmet goes toward additional helmets that are stocked and available throughout the winter months. Neither Lake Stevens Fire nor Safe Kids Snohomish County profits.

To buy a ski helmet, contact public educator Jennye Cooper at 425-334-3034 to set up a fitting appointment. The person for whom the helmet is intended must be present at the time of fitting and purchase.
