Free Car Seat Checkup Event Scheduled for June 12th in North Charleston

Published

By: North Charleston Fire Department

How certain are you that your child is  the safest they can be while riding in the car? With vehicle crashes being a leading cause of  death for children 1 to 12 years old in the United States, it’s very important to make sure your child is in the correct safety seat to accommodate their growing bodies. Car seats can reduce  the risk of fatal injury in a crash by 71% for infants and 54% for toddlers. Know for sure if your child is in the right car seat! 

To help caregivers transport children as safely as possible, the North Charleston Fire Department, along with Safe Kids Charleston Area, MUSC Children’s Health, South Carolina DHEC and St. John’s Fire District, will be hosting a FREE car seat checkup event on June 12th from 9 am to 12 pm at North Charleston City Hall (2500 City Hall Lane).

Certified child passenger safety technicians will be on hand to check car seats for proper installation, and to advise parents and caregivers on how to choose the right car seat and  properly install it in the vehicle. In addition, technicians can check for expiration dates and recalls of car seats and will demonstrate how to register car seats with manufacturers so parents and caregivers will be notified if there is a recall. Technicians will conduct car seat  checks at this event on a first come, first served basis.

To learn more about this event, contact Fire and Life Safety Educator, Laura Kondor, of North  Charleston Fire Department at (843) 740-2647 or e-mail: LKondor@northcharleston.org. Technicians will conduct car seat checks at this event on a first come, first served basis.
