Child Safety Seat Event This Weekend In Artesia

A local child safety seat fitting station will be hosted this weekend in honor of a young boy killed in a crash. The fitting will be from 10am to noon on Saturday, December 15th at Fire Station #2, located at 309 North Seventh Street in Artesia. The event is being held in memory of 7 year-old Cy Palmer, who was killed in November of last year. Plamer was not strapped into a booster seatm which experts say helps to ensure that seat belts fit correctly and the child is properly restrained in the car. State law says that all occupants of a vehicle must be properly restrained in all seating positions.
