Valenzuela and the Phoenix Fire Department invite residents to a free child car safety seat event from 9 to noon Saturday, Dec. 15, at Maryvale Community Center, 4420 N. 51st Ave.  During the event, Phoenix fire technicians will provide free safety checks of child car and booster seats.

“Having a car safety seat for your child is the first important step. Making sure it is properly installed is equally important,” said Councilman Valenzuela.  “Taking a little time now will give parents peace of mind knowing their children are safe on Valley roads.”

Recently, the Arizona House of Representatives passed a bill extending the car/booster seat requirement to passengers in a motor vehicle between the ages of five and eight, who are no more than four feet nine inches tall.  

Residents are encouraged to visit phoenix.gov/district5 and subscribe to Councilman Valenzuela’s neighborhood newsletter to stay informed of upcoming events and important city issues.
