TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Parent in Tucson, mark your calendars. Tucson Medical Center, the Tucson Police Department and other organizations across the state are partnering for a child car seat giveaway on Saturday, April 24.
In order to receive a free car seat, parents will need to attend a one-hour class at the Westside Police Service Center at 1310 W. Miracle Mile Rd. Classes begin at 8 a.m. and run through various times throughout the morning.
“Even with numbers decreasing, we need to remind the community that it is critical for babies, toddlers and children to be in a car seat or booster seat, and later a seat belt, any time they are in a vehicle,” said Safe Kids Pima County coordinator, Jessica Mitchell. “And it is essential that they are properly restrained in the right kind of car seat or booster that is correctly installed – and correctly used each and every time.”
Interested parents can register for a time slot [HERE].
Only one seat will be given per registrant, and children will not be permitted to the class. Parents are asked to plan ahead.
