Two free child safety-seat check-up events Feb. 16 and 23

The Merced County Department of Public Health will host two free child safety-seat check-up events this month. Public health officials are encouraging all local families with children who ride in car seats to attend.

“Merced County children are at greater risk than most other California children due to motor vehicle accidents and improperly installed safety seats,” said John Volanti, the county’s public health director. “These free community events better ensure that safety seats are installed correctly and that parents have up-to-date information on Child Passenger Safety Laws.”

Families should come with their children and their car seats. Certified child safety seat technicians will assist parents, and child safety kits will be available.
