Snow and ski season has arrived in the great northwest. When families head to the mountains to enjoy snow sports such as skiing, snowboarding and tubing, Lake Stevens Fire and Safe Kids Snohomish County want to encourage everyone to protect their heads by wearing a properly fitted helmet.  Ski/snowboarding helmets, which can reduce the severity of a head injury, should be worn and fit properly to a particular individual.

Lake Stevens Fire is proud to offer ski and snowboard helmets at a 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, provided by Safe Kids Snohomish County, are of equal quality to the helmets found in specialty stores, for a fraction of the cost and come with lined padding and ear covers.  The cost of the helmet allows us to restock another helmet so we can continue to offer this service throughout the winter months.  Neither Lake Stevens Fire nor Safe Kids Snohomish County profits from the cost.

To purchase a ski helmet, contact Lake Stevens Fire 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 purchase and fitting.
