Is it true that the fire department issues free bicycle helmets?

The Fire Department conducts an injury prevention program to provide bicycle helmets free of charge to children. The intent is to provide helmets to those who could not normally afford them. Children need to be accompanied by an adult, and should go to the Headquarters Fire Station at 1016 13th Street during regular business hours. Depending on available supply, they will be properly fitted by one of the Firefighter/Paramedics.
