The California Highway Patrol, State Senator Ben Hueso’s office, Imperial County Public Health Department, Border Patrol, El Centro Fire Department, El Centro Police Department, and Imperial County Children and Families First Coalition are joining with Burlington Coat Factory to conduct a traffic safety/car seat event Saturday. The event will be held in front of Burlington in El Centro, beginning at 8:00 am. The goal is to heighten pedestrian, bicycle and car seat safety through education. Funding for the program is being provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
