Article Published 10/10/2008

The Fire Department received the "Child Passenger Safety Program of The Year" award at the 2008 Zero Fatalities Safety Summit held in Salt Lake City on October 6.

Our "Child Safety Seat Installation & Check Program" was nominated by the Davis County Safe Kids Coalition and selected amongst several other programs.

Doug Bitton and Dean Hunt have championed the program, utilizing seven certified child safety seat technicians.

The technicians are:

Roxanne Bauman

Kevin Karician

Luke Embly

Jeff Peters

Cyle Hall

Doug Bitton

Gary McCloy

We've had tremendous public appreciation for the program these past couple of years.

There have been some very emotional 'thank yous' from parents, as they realize how much safer we have helped their children become.

Through September of this calender year, we have installed or checked 75 child safety seats.

At the Kendall Bryant Open House last week, there was an additional 40 appointments made to assist with checking or installing 78 child safety seats.
