Car seat check planned for October 5

Posted: Updated:

Trained staff will be assisting families in making sure their car seats are properly installed on Thursday, October 5 from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. at Roling Ford in Shell Rock.

Families with children one month to 12 years old are welcome to attend the free event.  Waverly Health Center staff will be checking seats, as well as providing education to parents on the importance of car seats being installed correctly.

"Around 80% of car seats are not installed correctly.  We want to make sure that the car seats are installed correctly so if they are in a crash, the children are safe and secure," said Kim Conner or the WHC Birthing Center.

The event is funded by Jerry Roling Motors and Roling Ford.
