The public is invited to attend a FREE Child Safety Seat Clinic on Tuesday, June 19; Wednesday, June 20; and Thursday, June 21 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the City of Rolla Fire and Rescue headquarters (located at 1490 E. 10th Street in Rolla).
During this clinic, certified child safety seat technicians will inspect your child car seat, and show you how to correctly install and use it.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, three out of four child safety seats are improperly installed. In 2011, eight children less than eight-years-old were killed and 1,624 children were injured as occupants in motor vehicle crashes in Missouri.
A limited number of seats are available at no charge to those that meet income guidelines. For more information on this program, please call Lynette Manley, City of Rolla Fire & Rescue, at 364-3989 or Lisa at the Phelps County Health Department at 458-6030.
