Approximately 90% of the car seats inspected by
our technicians are installed improperly. To assist parents we
educate and guide parents through the correct
installation of their child safety seat.

does not provide free car seats.
- City of Mesa Fire Stations DO NOT

are only scheduled for the following days and
