CAR SEAT SAFETY CHECK BY LEWISBORO POLICE DEPARTMENT

Wednesday, November 20, 10:00 am

For all those with car seats. Did you know that more than half of car seats are not properly installed or fitted? Officer Erika Holze is coming to the Library parking lot to conduct car seat safety checks. Each car seat safety check takes 10-15 minutes and will check not only installation but also for expiration dates and for any recalls. Each seat is uninstalled, checked, and then reinstalled. The goal is to teach parents and caregivers how to install their seats with confidence. No registration required.
