How sure are you that your child's car safety seat is installed correctly?
If you're 100 percent sure, then congratulations. But as a new parent, I'm still always double- and triple-checking the seat's connections each time I drive my son around town.
To keep kids safe, and make parents feel at ease, Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) is partnering with MD Kids in Safety Seats to offer the first car seat inspection of the year.
The free event will take place 2-5 p.m. Wednesday at the parking lot and garages directly to the right of the Central Services Building on the Arnold campus, located at 101 College Parkway.
The inspection is being offered on a first-come, first-served basis. If a seat is not installed correctly, it will be removed and a certified technician will show the parent how to install it correctly. The parent must assist with the installation.
Parents should be prepared for a line when they arrive, according to a release.
The Central Services Building, is located just past the barn on AACC's campus, just off of College Parkway. For more information, contact Sgt. Nancy Kutz, crime prevention specialist, or call 410-777-2096.
