Car Seat Checks
There is a certified Child Passenger Technician at every station, every day.
Arvada Fire Protection District accommodates drop-in child passenger safety (car seat) inspections/educational session on how to properly install a child passenger restraint in a vehicle in a manner that does not hinder emergency operations. These drop-in requests from the public are welcome between 0700 and 1900 but no reasonable request shall be turned away. Child passenger safety inspections and education will only be conducted by a currently certified child passenger safety technician.
Car Seat Recycle Program
We have one POD for collection of old Car Seats as part of the Colorado State Patrol Recycle program:
Headquarters: 7903 Allison Way
As noted on the signage located on the pod individuals need to check in with Headquarters to recycle their car seat. This is not a drop and drive location; please visit during office hours to recycle their seat.
The recycling POD is overseen by CSP and the seats are taken to a local recycler who recycles all parts of the seat. This process helps avoid reuse of old, outdated seats and keeps them out of the trash and second-hand stores. Any person (does not have to be an Arvada Citizen) is welcome to recycle seats.
