City fire department holds Open House, offers child passenger safety inspections
A Child Passenger Safety inspection event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the City of Batavia Fire Department on Saturday, Oct. 1. This will coincide with its annual Open House.
This program is funded by the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. An annual grant is awarded to each agency participating in this program, which includes supplies and car seats.Not every inspection results in a new car seat.
This program is designed around educating parents and if the car seat supplied is recalled or defective, it is then replaced. The fire department has a supply of car seats available at the firehouse but they are issued depending on supply and demand.
The city fire department is located at 18 Evans St.
