Certified safety seat installers will examine car seats to ensure they’ve been correctly placed in the vehicle.  “We need to make sure they’ve selected the proper child safety seat for their child, and that they’ve got it going in the right direction, whether it be a rear-facing or a forward-facing car seat,” said Zents, “We want to check the installation, not only in the vehicle itself, but also the child in the child safety seat.  So there’s several things that we will be looking at when they come in.”

The free event will run from 11:00 to 1:00 at the Excelsior Spring Fire Department.  In order to reduce wait times, Zent requests those who come make an appointment with the Safety and Health Council at (816) 842-5223.
