VAFB Becomes Official Child Safety Seat Fit Station

There is no doubting the importance of car seats when it comes to your child’s safety. Therefore, it’s important that the seat be installed correctly so that it will protect your child should you be involved in a crash.


But parents and caregivers sometimes struggle to install it properly because each car and seat is unique and trying to match them up can sometimes be a daunting task.


The Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance West Creek office has become an official Child Safety Seat Fit Station. 12580 West Creek Parkway will be listed on the Virginia Department of Health and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration websites as a free place for struggling parents to go to get their child strapped in properly.


The new program means anyone, whether or not they are a Farm Bureau member, can call the VFB safety program and schedule an appointment to come to our building and have their safety seat inspected by a nationally-certified technician.  Appointments will typically be on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursdays but can be scheduled for the same day if a participant calls ahead.


For additional information, contact our safety department at 804/290-1000.
