Upcoming Child Safety Seat Clinic! May 31, 2010

Need a free check or how-to on installing and using child safety seats? Here’s your chance!

I received an email last week asking to pass along for any persons interested an event on the how-to’s of making sure child safety seats are used properly.

Safe Kids of St. Joseph County has teamed up with Hoffman Insurance Group for a Child Seat Safety event in June. Since local fire and police departments receive quite a few calls from concerned parents about learning how to properly install their child’s car safety seats, but it’s not a service that is generally offered through departments on a routine basis.

The event is free and open to all persons wanting to have the seats inspected and make sure they are installed and used properly. Motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death among children in the U.S. according to the CDC. But many of these deaths can be prevented. Placing children in age- and size-appropriate car seats and booster seats reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half.

The event will be held on Monday, June 14 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm.

It will be at the Hoffman Insurance Group offices located at 6005 N Fir Rd, Granger IN 46530.

Anyone with questions can contact Elle or Pat at 574.277.5511.

This event is free and open to the public.
