We want to make sure everyone is safe from not only fires, but injuries too! Once a child outgrows a car seat at about age five and 40lbs, a booster seat can help position your child so the lap/shoulder seat belt fits them correctly. RRFD offers FREE booster seats to residents who qualify. Stop by our Admin Center with your child during normal business hours or give us a call for more details! Oh...and did you know that all children should ride buckled up in the back seat until age 12?
