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 and subscribe to Councilman Valenzuela’s neighborhood newsletter to stay informed of upcoming events and important city issues.
