Fire District handing out ice cream “tickets” to kids wearing helmets


North Whatcom Fire and Rescue firefighters are handing out ice cream coupons to kids “caught” wearing helmets while riding bikes, scooters and skateboards in Blaine and Birch Bay.

The fire district has partnered with Edaleen Dairy to distribute coupons for a small soft serve ice cream as an incentive for kids to wear safety equipment while riding their bikes and other human-powered vehicles. The coupons are redeemable at any Edaleen Dairy location, including the store at 458 Peace Portal Drive.

Firefighters in Birch Bay and Blaine will give out coupons until the end of September or until they run out, fire lieutenant Leslee Smith said in an email to The Northern Light.
