Car Seat Safety Check Saturday in Oak Ridge

The Oak Ridge Police Department, Oak Ridge Fire Department and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital are hosting a child passenger seat checkpoint on Saturday, July 14, 2018. The event is free and open to the public.

The checkpoint will be held at Oak Ridge Fire Department Station #2, located at 609 Oak Ridge Turnpike (near Home Depot). Parents and caregivers are invited to stop by anytime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. with no need to pre-register.

During the event, child car seats will be checked for any manufacturer recalls and examined for proper installation by certified technicians. Crews will also distribute educational materials about car seats.

East Tennessee Children’s Hospital advises anyone planning to attend a car seat inspection to bring the car seat’s instruction booklet and the vehicle owner’s manual. Also, to make the process more efficient, please install the child restraint seat to the best of your ability before attending the inspection.

Additional car seat checkpoints will be scheduled throughout the year. For more information, contact the Oak Ridge Police Department at (865) 425-3504 or the Oak Ridge Fire Department at (865) 425-3520.
