The City of El Mirage Fire Department received a grant for approximately $8,900 from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. The grant will improve the use of seat belts, child safety seats and reduce the number of fatalities and injuries due to vehicular crashes throughout the State of Arizona.
The grant allows the El Mirage Fire Department to provide 80 child safety seats for families that cannot afford one and sponsor educational activities to raise awareness within the City of El Mirage. This funding will also provide training to certify three new car seat technicians for the El Mirage Fire Department. Seats will be installed at regular car seat installation events by the Fire Department.
For more information regarding car seat installations, contact the El Mirage Fire Department at 623-583-7968.
