Free car seat-fitting station slated Friday, June 5

Event hosted by UNM Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department with Safer New Mexico Now

The UNM Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department, in collaboration with Safer New Mexico Now, is hosting a car seat fitting station on Friday, June 5, 9 a.m.-noon, at Albuquerque Fire Department #3 located at 141 Girard NE. This service is free of charge. To make your appointment, please call 272-5314.

According to the National SAFE KIDS Coalition, three out of four car seats are used incorrectly. The car seat checkup is offered in an effort to educate families about the importance of properly restraining children in motor vehicles. Through this program, parents and caregivers receive hands-on instruction from certified child passenger safety technicians who will examine each child safety seat for correct use, installation and recalls.
