Tomorrow Rural/Metro will hold two events in the East Valley to help parents make sure they have the right seat for their kids and the seats are properly installed. They will also collect gently used and new car seats so the state can donate them to families in need in Mexico. Rural/Metro is a partner in our child safety seat program that was established as cooperative partnership at the Arizona-Mexico Commission last summer. All child safety seats donated by Arizonans for transfer to Sonora will be inspected using the Used Car Seat Check List


The safety seat checks are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Fountain Hills Fire Station 1, 16426 E. Palisades, and Wal-Mart, 1725 W. Hunt Highway, San Tan Valley.


If you can’t attend this weekend’s events, you can always drop off car seats you no longer need at several Rural/Metro locations around the state, at the Department of Health Services building in Phoenix, 150 N. 18th Avenue, and at Courtesy Chevrolet, located at1233 East Camelback Road, through March 17.
