Is your child's safety seat ready for summer travel?

Vacation season is fast approaching and many families will find themselves venturing out on road trips. As a parent, I'm always making a to-do list so I don't forget to do some very important things before the trip. What does your list include?

One item you should always put on your list is making sure your child's car seat is installed properly. A few simple check points to make sure the child safety seat is secure: 1) Check the seat belt or latch anchors to make sure they are secure and snug. 2) Check the harnesses to be sure the straps aren't twisted or too loose. 3) Since the car is packed with everything you need for a vacation, check for items that would pose a risk of injury if they became projectiles in the car.

Safe Guilford encourages everyone to have their child's safety seat checked before you begin your travels. In recognition of National Safe Kids Week, Safe Guilford is hosting a Car Seat Safety Check Event to help you prepare for your upcoming trips.
