FALCON – The state is looking for more help in inspecting car seats.

This week Car Seat Colorado is kicking off a training drive. There is a 3-day course at Falcon Fire Station number 4.

A grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation is allowing applicants to take the course for free.

The goal: to cut down on child traffic deaths.

“The majority of car seats out there, four out of five car seats, are improperly used in the vehicle or
an improper selection for the child, so we have a high number of children that are not riding
safely in their vehicle,” said training coordinator Angel Griffin.

If you’d like to learn more head to Falcon Fire Station number 4 off Capitol drive on Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
