The Torrance Fire Department plans to bring a new safety initiative to City Council tonight.

TFD has a new car seat installation program to help Torrance residents. Firefighters have been certified to offer proper services on how to install and use a car seat safely. Officials say they now plan to offer assistance through appointment only to make the program more effective.

The department has five certified technicians who have completed a four-day national certification course. They plan to host their first workshop on Saturday, March 25 at Fire Station 2. and be sure to make an appointment as each seat check takes approximately 30-60 minutes to complete. The Torrance Fire Department has updated its webpage with information on how you can sign up for the workshop.
