The Pinal Rural Fire Rescue has car seats available for people in the community that may need one. They were awarded car seats as part of a grant they received. Chief Bud Paine and Karsten Lippert were able to deliver one car seat to a couple that has one vehicle are a new arrival on the way. They received a call from someone who had triplets so three of the car seats will go to that family. If you are in need or know of someone who needs a car seat please feel free to contact Pinal Rural Fire Rescue at 520-465-3393.

One of the most important jobs you have as a parent is keeping your child safe when riding in a vehicle. Each year thousands of young children are killed or injured in car accidents. The proper use of a car seat will help keep children safe. The helpful people at Pinal Rural Fire Rescue are happy to help show you the proper way to install a car seat.

Another important job as a parent is to know or learn CPR, and Pinal Rural Fire Rescue offers free CPR classes at Mammoth Elementary School Cafeteria the last Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. The next class is scheduled for March 29, 2014. After someone stops breathing, or the heart stops beating, he or she can survive for only four to six minutes before a lack of oxygen results in brain damage or death. CPR can buy extra time for your loved ones, until professional help can arrive, by artificially circulating oxygen to the brain. Statistics show that the earlier CPR is initiated the greater chance of survival.

Pinal Rural Fire and Rescue is a non-profit all hazard fire, rescue, EMS department that is 100 percent volunteer. They are located on Hwy 77 in southeastern Pinal County. Chief Bud Paine is a nationally registered paramedic, toxicology medic, fire and arson investigator. Bud is actively seeking grants to help implement and educate the community as he continues to safeguard lives and properties in the area.
