Alpharetta Public Safety Offers Free Child Seat Safety Check

Released June 01, 2016 01:58 PM

Parents, grandparents and others can take advantage of a free child safety seat checkup event on Thursday, June 16 from 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM.  The event will be held at Alpharetta Fire Station 81, which is located at 2970 Webb Bridge Road.  No appointment is necessary.

Parents are encouraged to bring to the event their infants or children and the car seat intended to be used.

National statistics indicate that four out of five child safety seats are misused every day in the United States. Alpharetta police officers and firefighters who are state certified child safety technicians will be on hand to install, evaluate, adjust and demonstrate the proper methods of using a child restraint seat.

Those attending this child safety seat event will also be provided other useful information to help ensure the safety of their children.

The event is brought to you by the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety in partnership with North Fulton Safe Kids.
