COLUMBUS – The Columbus Community Hospital will be providing free car seat checks during the Kids Safety Day event on September 22.
CCH is partnering with Safe Kids Nebraska to provide the checks, where certified technicians will teach caregivers about proper car seat installation, and how to properly secure a child in a car seat.
Technicians will also check to make sure caregivers are using appropriate seats for their children, and ensure that no car seats have been recalled. According to Safe Kids Nebraska, trained technicians find that more than 90 percent of car seats they check are not correctly installed.
The Kids Safety Day event will take place at Mike’s Auto Sales and Towing at 1858 33rd Avenue in Columbus on September 22, from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. To make an appointment for a car seat safety check, call (402) 562-3266.
