Free bicycle helmets available to kids, teens

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Free bicycle helmets for children and teenagers are now available at Anchorage Fire Department (AFD) stations.  

This safety program is a collaboration between Safe Kids Alaska, AFD, and International Association of Firefighters Local 1264, with generous funding provided by the Children's Miracle Network. 

To receive a helmet:

  • Kids/teens must be present so the helmet can be fitted and adjusted; and
  • Supplies are limited to stock on hand. 

Although any child can receive a free helmet, this program is intended for those who might not otherwise be able to obtain a bike helmet. 

For more information, please contact Safe Kids Alaska at (907) 212-3194 or
