Free checks of your child's car seat for safety

The Warren County Sheriff's Office will conduct a free inspection of child car seats from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday June 19 at the Warrensburg Firehouse on Elm St. Studies show that as many as nine-tenths of all child car seats are improperly installed and can fail in the event of an accident. All are urged to participate, as the county sheriff's office would like to assure the safety of local children. For details, contact officer Harry Swan at the sheriff's office.

North Country Ministry is also urging all parents and caregivers to be sure their children's car seats are properly installed as they prepare for vacation travel. The agency has three certified safety inspectors who will be happy to check the child car seat for anyone who contacts North County Ministry for an appointment. The agency also has a program which can supply car seats for those who can financially qualify. For details, call 251-4460.
