Get your child safety seats checked on Saturday

The Oak Ridge Police and Fire Departments are holding a “Child Passenger Safety Checkpoint” Saturday, May 16, from 10 am to 1 pm at Fire Station 3 on Tuskegee Drive (behind KMart). There will be technicians on hand to educate and assist parents and grandparents on the proper installation and use of child safety seats and booster seats.

There have been recalls of some seats, and they’ll have information on them, too.

Tennessee requires all kids between 4 and 8 years old, less than 4’9″ tall, to ride secured with a belt positioning booster seat, in the back seat if available, and they can offer assistance with how these are properly and safely used.
