St. Francis offering free child safety seat check Nov. 1 | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey

CHI Health St. Francis is hosting a free child safety seat check from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Nov. 1 at Fire Station No. 1, located at 409 E. Fonner Park Road.

The St. Francis team of certified child passenger safety technicians and other trained volunteers will inspect each safety seat to make sure it fits the child properly, is correctly secured, and is in the safest possible location in the vehicle. Children must be present. Expectant parents are welcome. A limited number of seats will be available for purchase, if needed.

Additional child safety seat check dates are Dec. 6.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages birth to 13. Correctly used child safety seats can reduce that risk by as much as 71%. However, three out of four car seats are not used or installed correctly.
