Car Seat Check-Up, Safe Kids Day & Bicycle Safety Rodeo
St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center, the lead organization of Mercer County Safe Kids, and the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department, sponsored a Car Seat Check-Up event on June 8, 2019. They checked 47 car seats to determine if they were installed correctly. 44 out of the 47 had been installed incorrectly and the officers, who are certified Child Passenger Safety technicians, correctly installed them and instructed the parents and grandparents on proper installation and safety.
We were pleased to be able to offer this important and worthwhile event.
