California law requires a child restraint (child safety seat or booster seat) to be utilized by children until they are at least 8 years old or 4’9” tall.  To raise awareness on child seat safety, the California Highway Patrol, Hemet Women’s Club and Burlington Coat Factory have partnered together in an ambitious effort to educate Hemet-area drivers.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 12,  CHP will bring these potentially life-saving messages to local residents, when they conduct a car seat safety inspection and installation fair at the Hemet Burlington Coat Factory at 2171 West Florida Avenue, Hemet. CHP will provide personnel to inspect and install car seats for local residents.
