Saturday, August 24, is National Car Seat Check Saturday! While automobiles have never been safer, car crashes remain a leading cause of death for children between the ages of 1 to 13. The proper use of child safety seats–including booster seats–and seat belts can dramatically reduce the risk of death and serious injury.
We will be joining with child passenger safety technicians from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to host a free community car seat check at the Harrison City Fire Department. Parents and caregiver can bring their cars and car seat by any time from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to ensure that it is installed and secured correctly. This is crucial to making sure that the child survives in the event of an accident.
As Child Passenger Safety Month continues, we hope you’ll help us spread the word in Harrison and the surrounding communities. Anyone in need of a new car seat can sign up for our September car seat giveaway. Further information on Child Passenger Safety is available here.
