Child Car Seat Safety Event Hosted by Councilman Valenzuela and Phoenix Fire

Nov. 7, 2012

Mom and Baby Car Seat PhotoCouncilman Daniel T. Valenzuela and the Phoenix Fire Department invite residents to a child car seat safety event from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at Villa De Paz Elementary School, 4940 N. 103rd Ave (just south of Camelback Road).  During the event, Phoenix fire technicians will provide free safety checks of child car and booster seats.

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.  

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

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.
