Car Seat Safety Checks
To Be Offered at UW-Eau Claire

 MAILED:  April 11, 2003

EAU CLAIRE - The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Police, Children's Center and Chippewa Valley SAFE KIDS Coalition will cosponsor a child car seat check from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday, April 24. The free event will take place in the parking lot behind the Children's Center and Zorn Arena.

Child passenger safety seat technicians certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will inspect car seats in vehicles and educate adults who transport children on the correct installation and use of car seats. This check is a way for trained technicians to show parents the proper way to install the seats to keep each child safe.

The Chippewa Valley SAFE KIDS Coalition is a nonprofit organization that promotes the safety of children.

For more information contact Christopher Kirchman, (715) 836-2222 or kirchmca@uwec.edu.
