Councilman Daniel Valenzuela and the Phoenix Fire Department invite residents to a child car seat safety event from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, at Washington Activity Center, 2240 W. Citrus Way.  During the event, Phoenix fire technicians will provide free safety checks of child car and booster seats.

“As a fire fighter, I know what it's like to respond and react to treat a child with injuries at a car crash scene due to not being properly restrained in a car seat,” said Councilman Valenzuela.  “This event is about being proactive to prevent such injuries from happening in the first place through education."

Recently, the Arizona House of Representatives passed a bill requiring passengers in a motor vehicle between the ages of five and eight, who are no more than four feet, nine inches tall, to be restrained in a child safety seat. 

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