Safe Kids Campbell County Hosts Child Safety Seat Check
Written by broebling on September 22, 2017
Press Release —Safe Kids Campbell County hosts a Child Safety Seat Check on Saturday, September 23, from 10 am-2 pm at the Campbell County Public Health parking lot, 2301 W. 4-J Road in Gillette.
At this event, community members can have a child passenger technician check your child’s safety restraint to make sure it is up to date and installed properly with no recalls. Participants are asked to bring the child, their current car seat and the vehicle that they normally travel in for the check. Inspection time is around 30 minutes. Replacement car seats are available for a $30 contribution; booster seats are available for free for those with a current need, while supplies last.
Have your child practice riding skills through an obstacle course at the Kids Bike Rodeo during the event. Parent, child and bike must be present for bike registration. Free bike helmets if needed, while supplies last.
Also running the same day: Campbell County Sheriff’s Office will host a drug take back. This is a great way for you to safely dispose of expired and unused prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Safe Kids Campbell County provides our community with free car seat checks and much more to help educate our children on preventing accidental injuries. Weekly car seat inspections are held on Wednesdays by appointment at the Campbell County Health Emergency Medical Services Base, 502 Stocktrail Avenue in Gillette.
