Our friends at Safe Kids Shawnee County are hosting free, monthly car seat checkups, a fantastic resource! The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center is hosting the checkup on May 13, so mark your calendar! Learn to install a car seat or booster or find out if it’s time for a change.
Certified technicians will: Inspect the child restraint; confirm that the child restraint is correct for the size, weight, and age of the child; provide hands-on instruction on how to install and use the child restraint in the vehicle; offer guidance on how to correctly place a child in the restraint; answer questions parents or caregivers may have.
Parents or caregivers can: Provide the age and weight for each child under 8; bring the child to the inspection station; provide the vehicle owner’s manual; provide the child restraint instructions; allow at least 20 to 30 minutes for each seat to be checked.
