KFD’s car seat clinic set for May 10

The Keizer Fire District and the Mid-Valley Car Seat Safety Coalition will hold a car seat clinic on Tuesday, May 10. 

While the event is free, appointments are required. Appointment start times run from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

During the 20-minute appointments, caregivers will be instructed on how to properly install the seat in their vehicle and how to safely restrain the child in the seat. 

Seats will also be checked for expirations and safety recalls, issues that Deputy Fire Marshall Anne-Marie Storms said they come across. 

Other common problems, according to Storms, are children too big or small for the specific seat, the seat being installed too loose and trying to move a child to a booster seat before they are mentally or physically ready. 

Appointments are still available, but limited. To schedule an appointment call 503-390-9111.
