GEICO schedules the next two classes on installing child safety seats

TUCSON, Ariz., May 15, 2017 – GEICO has partnered with Safe Kids Pima County and the Tucson Police Department to host monthly classes that walk parents through how to properly install child safety seats. Since GEICO began the child safety seat program in 2009, close to 6,000 car seats have been provided to Tucson-area families.

The classes are held at GEICO's office on 930 N Finance Center Drive and last about one hour 15 minutes.
GEICO currently has openings for classes on the following dates:

  • Monday, May 22, 6:30 p.m.
  • Monday, June 26, 6:30 p.m.

Classes are free of charge, and parents will receive a safety seat at the session. Space is limited to 35 attendees, and those interested in participating must contact GEICO ahead of time at 520-546-7340 to reserve an appointment.

Parents will need to give the height and weight of their child so that they can receive the proper safety seat in the correct configuration.

"This program gives Tucson-area parents the peace of mind knowing their child has a safety seat, and more importantly, that it's configured to provide the right fit," said Martha Furans, GEICO vice president of operations in Tucson. We have all seen young children riding in vehicles without safety seats—this program seemed like a perfect pairing of resources to contribute to the community where we live and work."
