Airbag Recall Fort Bend
Wednesday, October 10 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This event is an initiative to raise awareness about the dangerous recall on Takata Airbags, the largest safety recall in U.S. history. Prolonged exposure to high heat and humidity degrades the chemical propellant in a defective airbag inflator over time, which makes the product more explosive and increases the risk of serious injury.
Airbag Recall Blitz Fort Bend Launch will include John Buretta-U.S. Department of Justice appointed Independent Monitor of the Takata Recall, Heidi King- Deputy Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Faizan Hanif- brother of the Fort Bend victim, as well as many other local officials to help launch this pilot initiative. The goal is to raise awareness about defective airbags in the Fort Bend Community and work together with community leaders, organizations, private companies and others to get them replaced and off the road.
