City of Victoria employees Elizabeth Montes and Tiffany Totah, Municipal Court; Kevin Lamprecht, Frank Naranjo and Maria Perez, Victoria Fire Department; and Nate Arnold, Adam Banda, James Collins, Bryan Knief, Lee Peters and John Turner, Victoria Police Department, were recently certified as child passenger safety technicians by Safe Kids Worldwide. This nationally recognized certification acknowledges that an individual is qualified to educate caregivers about proper installation and use of children’s car seats and booster seats. As part of their training, the employees completed a three-day training with the Texas A&M AgriLife Child Passenger Safety Program and the Texas Department of Transportation leading up to the car seat inspection event hosted by the Municipal Court on May 19, where they educated residents about child passenger safety. The employees were also required to pass an exam to be certified. To schedule a no-cost car seat inspection with the City of Victoria, visit www.victoriatx.gov/carseat
