G.F. Fire District promotes safe riders


June 1, 2010

Granite Falls Fire District 17 in partnership with McDonald’s restaurants is pleased to announce the “Safe Rider Citation” program within the Granite Falls area.

When uniformed fire service personnel see a child who is wearing a helmet while participating in a non-motorized wheeled activity, such as biking, scootering, in-line skating or skateboarding, the fire service member will present the child’s parent with a “Safe Rider Citation” card.

The “Safe Rider Citation” card not only commends the child for safe behavior, it also entitles the child for a free reduced-fat vanilla ice cream cone at participating McDonald’s restaurants.

Keep your child safe, always promote helmet use.
