    Child Passenger Safety Week

    NEWS RELEASE

    During Child Passenger Safety Week, the Oxnard Police Department reminds the public there are resources available for car seat installations.

    Safe Kids Ventura County, led by the Ventura County Public Health Department, offers free car seat installations and will have certified child passenger safety technicians available at the Ventura County Fire Department located at 106 E. Durley Ave, Camarillo. The technicians will teach parents and caregivers how to install the car seat correctly and educate them on the appropriate seat based on the child’s age and size.

    Car seat installations are offered every Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. with pre-registration required. To register for an installation, visit the Safe Kids Ventura County website at https://safekidsventuracounty.org/car-seat-education/

    The Oxnard Fire Department also offers car seat installations by appointment only. Contact the Oxnard Fire Department at (805) 385-7722 to make an appointment.

    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly half of car seats (46%) are misused.

    Child Passenger Safety Week concludes with National Seat Check Saturday on Sept. 24.

    California law requires all children under 2 years old to ride in a rear-facing car seat, unless the child is 40 or more pounds or is 40 or more inches tall. Parents are encouraged to keep your child in rear- and forward-facing seats as long as possible. Children 8 and older, who are at least 4 feet, 9 inches in height, may ride in the back seat of a vehicle in a properly fitted safety belt.

    To learn more about the Safe Kids Ventura County car seat program, visit https://www.safekids.org/coalition/safe-kids-ventura-county or contact (805) 981-5225

    To search for car seat programs in your county, visit the OTS website. You may also contact your local CHP Area Office to schedule a free child safety seat inspection.
