FCPD Car Seat Safety and Install @ Mount Vernon District Station
Jun 8 @ 9:30 am – 1:30 pm

Installing car seats for babies and children can be difficult, but we all want our children to travel safely. That’s why district stations across the county host free Car Seat Safety and Install events throughout the year! You will learn how you can ensure your car seat is properly installed to keep your child as safe as possible.

In preparation for your appointment, you should install the seat in your vehicle using the instructions that came with the car seat. Trained officers will review the car seat instructions and car owner’s manual to be certain that they are being followed as they should. All events are held in the parking lot of that district station.
