Parents who attend a one-hour class Saturday will drive away with a free car seat for their child.
Nationally certified car seat technicians from the Tucson Police Department will teach three one-hour classes for parents in how to properly use car seats, Officer Brandon Tatum, spokesman for the department, said in a news release.
Each class can accommodate 30 parents or guardians. Two classes will be taught in Spanish, one in English. At the end of each class 30 car seats will be given to the participants. The seats are suitable for children younger than 5 years old.
Registration for the classes begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at El Pueblo Regional Center, 101 W. Irvington Road just west of Interstate 19.
Classes in Spanish begin at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. The class taught in English begins at 11:45 a.m. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Latecomers will not be allowed to enter the classes.
Children are not allowed into the classrooms, so parents and guardians should make arrangements for childcare.
“Parents are encouraged to bring another adult that can remain outside the class if they have children attending the event,” the news release stated.
