Our Child Seat Checks make front page of Tribune!
The La Crosse Tribune ran an article about our Child Seat Checks on the front page on Wednesday Feb 4th. We are glad they did as the article explains that out of the 133 Child Seats we checked last year, only 16% were installed correctly. This identifies a serious need for our Free Child Seat Checks and we are happy to provide this service to our community.
The Child Seat Checks are held on the First Thursday each month from 3-7pm at Brenengen Chevrolet on Hwy 16 in West Salem. Certified Child Safety Technicians from the County of La Crosse will be there to fit your Child or Booster seat and also show you how to do it correctly.
Quote from the article:
“Business has been steady at the safety checks, but we’d love to see more people,” Silha said. “I think some people are embarrassed to come for help, but they need to know it’s not easy to fit these car seats correctly.”
“We want to help them do it right, and we actually teach them the right way to do it,” she said.
