It’s a startling fact that most child car seats are improperly installed – up to 73 percent in fact. Let the experts of Castle Rock Fire and Rescue and Castle Rock Adventist Hospital help keep your children safe. Together, the two entities will host a car seat check event from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 25. The event will be in the parking lot on the south end of the Alexander Building, next to the hospital. Trained car seat technicians will be there to check your seat and provide tips for safest use. It’s best if parents try to install the seat before they come to the event. This will help parents be more familiar with the car seat and assist in the inspection. “Correctly installed and used car seats are the best way to protect our children from injury in the event of a car accident,” said Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Chief Art Morales. “The evidence is clear, and for this reason we are committed to ensuring that our community’s car seats are properly installed.” If you can’t make this event, Castle Rock Fire and Rescue still wants to help you make sure your child is safe in the car. CRFD has an ongoing car seat inspection program. Visit one of the department’s four stations any day of the week between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. to have an inspector check your child’s car seat. (Please keep in mind you may have to go to another station if there is an emergency, or the technicians are unavailable.) A list of stations and more information is online at CRgov.com/carseats.
