SEARHC Injury Prevention offers ice cleats coupon for older adults


The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) Injury Prevention department is offering coupons for $7 ice cleats to local elders.

t’s that time of year when ice and snow can make walkways slippery, especially when visibility is limited or you’re walking in poorly lit or drained areas. SEARHC’s Injury Prevention team wants to let everyone know ice cleats are a simple preventive measure that can be taken so you can safely walk all winter.

In partnership with the Sitka Fire Department, SEARHC is providing ice cleat coupons to help with foot traction for those ages 60 and older. Ice cleats priced at $30.00 or less now can be purchased with the coupon from participating stores (Orion Sporting Goods, Russell’s, Work & Rugged Gear Store or Yellow Jersey Cycle Shop) for just $7.00.

You may pick up a coupon at the Sitka Fire Department at 209 Lake Street, or you can visit the SEARHC S’áxt’ Hít Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital Social Services, Security or Physical Therapy departments at 222 Tongass Drive. The offer is available through Dec. 24 and limited to stock on hand.
