Community Car Seat Check
Saturday, September 23, 2023
When it comes to child safety, it is better to be safe than sorry. Child Passenger Safety Awareness Week highlights the importance of ensuring that all children are properly secured in an appropriate car seat or seatbelt. A child’s age, weight, and height can all play a factor when determining proper safety harnesses, so it’s important to keep up-to-date with all current regulations and suggestions.
September 18-24 is dedicated to all things related to child passenger safety. Did you know that more than half of car seats are installed incorrectly? As a result, road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children. Teaching the community how to install their child passenger seats reduces the risk of death by as much as 71 percent.
On September 23rd, the Schertz Police Department along with other local agencies will be hosting a free community car seat check event. National Child Passenger Safety Technicians from Schertz Police Department, Cibolo Police Department, and Selma Police Department will help educate families in properly installing their car seats.
The event will be from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in front of the Schertz Playscape (629 Westchester Drive).
