(3/17/10) - Safe Kids Florence, led by McLeod Health, will host the upcoming Third Thursday with Kohl's Child Safety Seat Check and Bicycle Rodeo Thursday, March 18, 2010, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. in the Florence Kohl's parking lot. This child safety seat check is held the third Thursday of each month at this same time and location.
Safe Kids certified child safety seat technicians will check proper installation of child safety seats, correct those in need, and educate on proper installation and use. Participants must have both child safety seat and child present. Expecting parents, please bring seat.
Each child safety seat technician follows a child passenger safety checklist of child safety seat qualifications to ensure the safety of your child. The technician will determine if a new child safety seat is needed. If so, 1 per family is available while supplies last. If you are unable to receive a child safety seat at the event, please plan to attend the next Third Thursday event. Child safety seats are funded by Kohl's Cares for Kids.
A quarterly bicycle rodeo will take place at the March event. Children are encouraged to bring their bicycle and safety gear to practice wheel safety. Free children's helmets will be available while supplies last. The Florence County Sheriff's Office will provide free helmet and bicycle registration.
This event is open to all who are interested. In the case of rain, the event will be cancelled. For more information, please call Safe Kids Florence at (843) 777 - 2592. We look forward to seeing you at the Third Thursday with Kohl's Child Safety Seat Check, in the Kohl's parking lot located at 3041 W. Radio Drive, Florence. (Across from the Magnolia Mall).
