Car seat clinic offered Dec. 9
The Crow Wing County Passenger Safety Coalition is sponsoring a car seat clinic from 4-7 p.m. Dec. 9 at Mills GM in Baxter.
Trained child car seat technicians will be on hand to assist with correct installation, correct fit for child or infant and check seats for defects or recalls. They will answer any questions that parents or grandparents may have about child car seats. Free printed information about car seats will be available. There is no charge for this event.
The clinic is by appointment only. Call Crow Wing County Health at 824-1097 to schedule appointments or for more information. Appointments will be taken on a first-call basis until the clinic is full.
The car seat checks take about a half-hour per seat. Each child car seat requires its own appointment.
