Duluth Fire Department Hosting Car Seat Safety Clinic Thursday
All parents know the importance of putting young kids securely into car seats whenever they hit the road. However, it can be challenging, and a bit intimidating, to put a car seat into your vehicle as you want to make sure you're doing it properly to keep your kids safe.
I remember when my kids were of car seat age, I was always paranoid that their car seats weren't secure enough or whether or not I had the proper car seat for them as they grew. Car seat safety clinics were a great way to have an expert help and they put my mind at ease.
Car seat safety clinics are free and they allow parents and caregivers to have their child safety seat inspected by a certified child passenger technician. The child passenger safety technician inspect and assist parents and caregivers in installing their child safety seat.
Parents across the Northland can take advantage of this free service this week as the Duluth Fire Department is hosting their first car seat clinic of the year Thursday.
The Duluth Fire Department made the announcement Monday on their official Facebook page:
Are you a new parent or are you about to bring a new baby home? Have you signed up for the Car Seat Safety Clinic yet? Don't miss your chance!
This Thursday, April 21 from 4:00 - 6:00p.m. the DFD will be hosting it's first Car Seat Safety Clinic of the year. The clinics are a free service.
This first car seat clinic will take place at Station 7, which is located at 1419 Maple Grove Road. The department reminds all parents that masks are still required at all clinics.
