Car Seat Safety Check At SRC Health Department




Milton, FL – The Santa Rosa County Health Department will be offering free car seat safety checks on Thursday, September 13, at the main clinic location, 5527 Stewart Street in Milton.  The event will be held from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the health department parking lot.  Certified technicians will be on hand to provide information and examine seats to be sure they have been installed correctly.


According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents are the number one killer of children between one and 12 years old.  Safety seats are the best way to protect children in a crash, and a correctly installed seat will provide the maximum protection possible.


“About 80 percent of car seats are used incorrectly,” said Sherry Worley, R.N., certified safety seat technician  with the Santa Rosa County Health Department.  “Not only is it important for parents to use the correct seat for their child’s size, it also has to be installed correctly.”


For more information, contact Sherry Worley, R.N., at 983-5200, ext. 187.
