George Hildebran Receives CPS Permanent Checking Station Grant
Sun. Aug 9th 2009

George Hildebran Fire Rescue recently received a grant through the North Carolina Office of State Fire Marshall to become a permanent child seat checking station. The grant allowed us to acquire materials such as a fold up tent, chairs, scales to weigh the children and other items to aid us during seat checks. We also received one “Permanent Checking Station” sign from the Office of State Fire Marshall to identify George Hildebran Fire Rescue as a permanent seat checking station and a second one to give information on hours of operation.

Parents and care givers can call the department to schedule an appointment and get your child seat checked Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. If an emergency call should arise at the time of the appointment, instructions will be given when the appointment is scheduled to make arrangements to have the seat checked. Other locations that parents and care givers can also have their child seat checked are:
Valdese Fire Department                 (828)-879-2103
 
We also have child passenger seats for sale here at the station. We have convertible, combination, high back boosters and no back booster seats available for most age and size ranges. These seats are supplied through the Burke County Safe Kids Coalition. For more information please call the department at (828)-874-4610.
