Motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of injury and death in children, with over 70 percent of car seats misused or improperly installed.
Proper car seat use dramatically reduces the risk of serious injury or death, and Cranberry Township EMS is offering a free service to ensure children are safe when traveling near or far.
A free Car Seat Check is set for 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 30 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 nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technician will check each seat and make sure they are installed properly.
Appointments are strongly encouraged. To register, call 724-776-4480 ext. 1911 or email email@example.com.
