Riverside, Calif. (PRWEB) November 26, 2012
Parents may give the gift of safety to their kids this holiday season by getting their car seat checked for proper installation and fit at an upcoming Community Car Seat Clinic.
The free clinic is set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 5, at Sam’s Club, 6363 Valley Springs Parkway, Riverside, Calif., 92507. The event is being held in cooperation between Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital; Safe Kids, Inland Empire; Riverside Police Department; Injury Prevention Services of Riverside County; Sam’s Club; and AAA.
“Four out of 5 car seats are used incorrectly,” says Michelle Parker, coordinator of Safe Kids, Inland Empire, out of Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. “Using a car seat properly could make all the difference in the safety of your child.”
To make an appointment for the car seat clinic, call 951-826-5674.
