Free Child Car Seat Checkup Saturday

Not sure if you’ve properly installed your child’s car seat? Have your car seat checked or fitted for free by a Collier County Sheriff’s Office child passenger safety technician Saturday.

CCSO will join Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida for a car seat safety check from 9 a.m. to noon at Ecobaby &Home, 2355 Vanderbilt Beach Road #150, North Naples.

Certified car seat technicians will work with you to make sure your child is in the right seat and fitted properly, and that the seat is correctly installed in your vehicle.

The program is free and open to the public.

Bilingual fitting technicians will be available.

Call 239.565.8371 to schedule a car seat fitting.

Florida law requires parents to use a child restraint system. If children are not properly restrained while traveling in a vehicle, they could easily be injured in a collision or any other emergency situation.

To schedule an appointment for a free inspection at a time convenient to you, contact CCSO car seat safety technician Marianna Herrera at 239.252.0367, or e-mail
