Tucson Fire Department Receives State Grant for Car Seat Safety

The Tucson Fire Department (TFD) recently was awarded a $20,000 Car Seat Safety Grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety for the Safe Riders Program. TFD will use the grant money to purchase all-in-one car seats that will grow with the child from birth until they reach a height of 4 feet 9 inches.

The award allows the department to help further ensure the safety and security of children by having a certified and properly-installed car seat. Questions regarding the grant may be directed to the Tucson Fire Public Educators at (520) 837-7104.
