- Safe Kids Fargo/Moorhead, in partnership with Luther Family Buick Pontiac GMC, AAA North Dakota and Safe Communities of the Red River Valley host car seat safety check
Safe Kids Fargo/Moorhead is holding a car seat check event on Thursday, June 12, from 3-6 p.m. at Luther Family Buick Pontiac GMC, 3302 36th St. S.W., in Fargo. The event will give people access to car seat specialists who can assist parents and caregivers with properly installing their car seats. Studies show that four out of five car seats are installed incorrectly, which means children are at greater risk for being injured. To date, nearly one million car seats have been checked by car seat specialists through Safe Kids coalitions across the U.S.
Members of the Fargo/Moorhead Liberty semi-pro football team will be available to sign autographs at the event. Pizza and pop will be available while supplies last. Appointments are not necessary.
Safe Kids' mission is to help prevent accidental childhood injuries - the leading killer of children ages 1-14. Safe Kids Fargo/Moorhead is a member of Safe Kids Worldwide, a global network of organizations dedicated to preventing accidental injury. Safe Kids Fargo/Moorhead is sponsored by MeritCare Children's Hospital and Kohl's Department Store.
