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, Aug. 16.

CCSO will participate in the Chase Life Memorial Blood Drive & Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Big Corkscrew Island Fire Rescue Station 10, 13240 Immokalee Road.

A certified CCSO car seat technician at the event 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.

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
