Child passenger seats can reduce fatal injury by up to 71 percent for infants and 54 for percent for toddlers, but many children are at risk due to improperly installed car seats. In an effort to ensure every child’s car seat is being installed and used properly, Eastern Maine Medical Center, Safe Kids Maine, and Quirk Chevrolet are partnering up to offer free safety checks on Saturday, March 25.
The clinic will be take place between 10 am and 1 pm at Quirk Chevrolet, 293 Hogan Road. Making an appointment is highly recommended by visiting MaineSeatCheck.org. This free car seat inspection event is made possible thanks to the support of EMHS Foundation Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
