Posted on September 17, 2018 at 8:18 pm by Clay Curtin

As part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, the Police Department is hosting a Child Safety Seat Installation and Inspection event to provide traffic safety education Sunday, September 23, 2018, from 9 a.m.–1 p.m. in the Burgess Park parking lot at 701 Laurel St. Residents are encouraged to bring their vehicle with their car seats to this FREE event.

Certified child safety seat technicians will be on hand to assist with checking for recalls, proper fit and help with correct seat installation. No appointments needed and refreshments will be provided for the children.

For proper use of a child safety seat, parents/guardians should bring the safety seat and all of its parts, the vehicles owner's manual and the child safety seat instructions. Statistics show that 4 out of 5 child safety seats are being used incorrectly. For the latest child safety seat information, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.
