Does Your Bicycle Helmet Fit Correctly?

Throughout the year, please make sure your child’s helmet is fitted properly.  Please also make sure that you, as the parent/caregiver, are a GREAT role model and are wearing your helmet and wearing it properly anytime you are on wheels (bike, scooter, skateboard, roller blades, etc.).

To make  sure your helmet fits properly, you may call one of the following numbers to make an appointment:

Loveland Fire Rescue Authority     970.962.2537
Poudre Fire Authority                          970.221.6574
PVH Ambulance Services                 970.232.1750 then Press 1
