LACONIA — LRGHealthcare announced that free car seat inspections and education will be available to the community on Tuesday, September 16, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. at Irwin Automotive Group, 59 Bisson Avenue, Laconia. The event is part of "Child Passenger Safety Week" and will include car seat inspections by Carolyn Muller of LRGHealthcare who is a Certified Child Passenger Safety technician. Muller will be on hand to teach parents and caregivers how to choose the right car seats for their children and how to install them correctly.
"There's always danger on the road, every time you leave your home," said Muller "The best way to protect your child is to have him or her in the right seat for the child's age and size and to use that seat correctly. Even if you think you've got it right, make an appointment during Child Passenger Safety Week to know for sure. All parents want their kids to be safe, and this event will give them that peace of mind."
Child Passenger Safety Week, September 14-20, is a week dedicated to helping parents and caregivers make sure their children ride as safely as possible every time they are in vehicles. Certified Child Passenger Safety technicians teach families how to correctly secure their child and give families the information they need to correct mistakes when using car seats, booster seats and seat belts. This event is sponsored by LRGHealthcare and Irwin Automotive Group.
Call Irwin Automotive Group at 581-2968 to make an appointment, which will last approximately 20 minutes.
