Baltimore, MD (January 25, 2013) —The Anne Arundel Child Passenger Safety Team will hold a free car seat inspection event on Wednesday, January 30, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm at the Anne Arundel Community College, 101 College Parkway, Arnold, MD. No appointment is needed to attend this event.
Parents and other caregivers will have the opportunity to work with nationally certified child passenger safety technicians to ensure they are installing and using their car seat(s) properly, and learn more about how to keep children safe in the car. Participants should arrive with car seats already installed to the best of their ability, and they should bring both the vehicle and safety seat owner’s manuals with them.
Participants are encouraged to bring their children, so that child passenger safety technicians can assess how the child fits in the seat. If the child(ren) will not be present for the car seat inspection, place a piece of tape on the car seat, at the level of the child’s shoulders, so that technicians can accurately assess the child's position in the seat. Participants should be prepared to ask questions and be involved in the seat checking process, and may want to bring an additional adult to supervise children while they work with seat technicians.
