Franciscan Health Crown Point and Geminus Regional Health Systems are partnering to host two free car seat safety clinics in Valparaiso.
The events will take place from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21 and on Saturday, Feb. 18 at the MAAC Foundation Center, 4203 Montdale Park Drive in Valparaiso.
Qualifying Indiana residents may receive a new car seat thanks to a generous grant from Geminus Regional Health Systems. A certified Child Passenger Safety technician will install the seats while supplies last.
Caregivers must bring children to the event to allow the technicians to create a safe, proper fit.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration recommends all drivers who transport young children in passenger vehicles have their car seats checked by a certified technician.
Participants must meet eligibility requirements to receive a new car seat and reservations are required. To schedule an appointment and determine new car seat eligibility, call Marissa Adcock at (219) 488-1380.
