Is your child safety seat installed correctly?

LEWISBURG — If you are like most parents, your child safety seat is not properly installed.   That is why the folks at Evangelical Community Health and Wellness held a child safety seat check Friday at the Evangelical Community Education Center.

Deanna Carson, instructor of the car seat certification course spoke about why car seat checks are important, “We see a lot of misuse, maybe they didn’t pick the appropriate seat for the child, maybe it’s not in the car correctly, maybe the harness straps are not being used in the correct manner, so anyone who transports children on a regular basis really should have their car seat checked.”

If you did not make it out to this child car seat event and would like to get your car seat checked, car seat checks are available by appointment at the Evangelical Community Education Center.

Carson spoke about how they can help, ” We do car seat checks for anyone in the community who wants it done. We did 106 in the last three months and only six were installed correctly, so there is a huge misuse of car seats. ”

The Evangelical Community Education Center is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 4:30p.m. Child safety seat checks are available free by appointment. (Sarah Lagerman)
