Public Health – Seattle & King County wants to make sure a traveling parent’s precious cargo remains safe and secure with a free child car seat check-up event.

Parents and caregivers can have their child safety seat checked by a certified technician at the Coal Creek Family YMCA May 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends keeping children up to two years old in rear facing seats or until they have reached the maximum height and weight limits of the car seat.

Child safety seats reduce fatal injury by 71 percent for infants younger than one year old and by 54 percent for toddlers in passenger cars, according to national research.

The Coal Creek Family YMCA is at 13750 Newcastle Golf Club Road.
