Car seat check event to be held in Tioga County
Tioga County, N.Y. (WENY) – National Child Passenger Safety week begins tomorrow. This year, New York's Tioga County Public Health is working with both Visions Federal Credit Union and Mcdonalds to hold a car seat check event.
The event is free and will be held on Thursday the 19th. It will run from 3:30 to 6:00 at the Visions Federal Credit Union in Apalachin, New York.
Some people may not know this but studies find that 90% of car seats are installed incorrectly.
Mcdonalds will hand out coupons for a free happy meal for any child who has a car seat checked at the event. Certified car seat technicians will be there to make sure your child's car seat is properly installed, the car seat is the right fit for your child and to make sure the car seats are not expired or damaged.
Tioga County Public Health will have car seats at the event to replace any possible damage or expired seats. The seats are replaced at no cost.
A tip to know, your child must be present at the event for experts to wees if your child properly fits into the seat.
