According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 75% of children are riding in car seats that aren’t properly installed or don’t fit correctly.

Nationally certified child safety seat technicians will check car seats for proper installation and teach parents and caregivers how to properly install the car seats themselves.

The inspection date is on Jan. 9 and will be by appointment only from 8 a.m. to noon at Fire Station #4, located at 28711 Drake Road.
