Nearly 90 percent of car seats are misused or improperly installed, placing children at risk in the event of a crash.
Cranberry Township EMS is doing their part to make sure children are safe when traveling near or far.
A free Car Seat Check is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 5 at the EMS building on Route 19. The event is limited to 24 car seats, as each appointment takes about 30 minutes. During that time, a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician will check each seat and make sure they are installed properly.
Participants must have an appointment to take part. To register, call 724-776-4480 ext. 1911.
