A car seat safety check was held last Friday in Duncan, Oklahoma. The Central Fire Station was set up to enable concerned parents to bring their vehicles by to ensure that their car seat was installed in the correct manner. Inspectors also kept an eye out for carseats that were no longer legal or those that weren’t necessarily being used correctly given the age and size of the child. Carseats at a reduced price were also available to those in need. The event also functioned as a training operation of sorts for the 17 inspectors who recently underwent education as to proper carseat usage. Their certification to carry out inspections will last for a couple years. Safe Kids Oklahoma assisted the local fire department with the event.
