Saturday, August 6, 10:30 am to noon
Each year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. Proper use of car safety seats can greatly reduce risk and help keep kids safe. Join the Utah County Health Department, Safe Kids, and Intermountain Healthcare for a free car seat check on Saturday, August 6th from 10 a.m. to noon at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center Northwest Plaza parking lot (1134 N 500 W, Provo). Parents and care-givers will be shown how to correctly install, adjust, and use child safety restraints in order to maximize their effectiveness by certified child passenger safety technicians. Special instruction will also be given regarding the new Booster Seat Law, and parents will be shown how to determine when an older child is ready to graduate from a booster seat to adult safety belts. Inspections will be conducted on a first come/first served basis. Spanish-speaking technicians will also be available.
The Utah County Health Department provides car seat inspections as well as classes throughout the year as well. For details or appointments, please call 801-851-7035 or see our web site at www.utahcountyonline.org/Dept/Health/calendar/index.asp.
