Free Car Seat Safely Check Saturday in Reno

Posted: Updated:

You can make sure your child's car seat is properly installed at an event this Saturday at the UNR Early Head Start.

University of Nevada Early Head Start is partnering with REMSA for an inspection starting at 9am at the Nelson Building at 401 West Second Street.

There, safety technicians will make sure the seat is properly installed and the right kind for the age and weight of your child.

REMSA says 3 out of 4 car seats are not installed correctly. And according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car crashes are the number one cause of death for all children.

The event is limited to 30 cars so you'll want to get there early.

For more information, call 858-KIDS.
