Dave's Locker is a free community medical equipment service that loans out crutches, walkers, wheelchairs, shower stools, grab bars, canes, knee scooters, bathroom aids, and much more to anyone in need. Dave's Locker is located through the south door at Arvada Fire's Headquarters, 7903 Allison Way, and is open between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday-Friday.
Dave's Locker was founded in 2017 by now-retired Lieutenant Dave Matus, who started the non-profit by donating his own medical equipment following hip surgery. What began with just a few pieces of equipment has turned into a robust (and growing) supply of crutches, wheelchairs, and other free medical devices. The locker is now managed by Firefighter Don Lindsey and his wife Theresa Lindsey along with a dedicated group of over 30 volunteers who staff the Locker five days a week.
You can pre-order supplies or request equipment on Dave's Lockers website and then come in during business hours to pick up your supplies.
