McLeod Safe Kids Hosts Kohl’s Child Safety Seat Check


(4/19/11) – Safe Kids Florence, led by McLeod Health, will host the upcoming Third Thursday with Kohl’s Child Safety Seat Check on Thursday, April 21, 2011, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. in the Florence Kohl’s parking lot located at 3041 W. Radio Drive, across from Magnolia Mall.

The Kohl’s Child Safety Seat Check is held the third Thursday of each month at this same time and location. In the case of rain or other inclement weather, the event will be canceled.

Safe Kids Certified Child Safety Seat Technicians will check proper installation of child safety seats, correct those in need, and educate families on proper installation and use. Participants must have both the child safety seat and child present. Expecting parents should bring a seat with them.

Each child safety seat technician follows a child passenger safety checklist of child safety seat qualifications to ensure the safety of the child. The technician will determine if a new child safety seat is needed. If so, one seat per family is available while supplies last. Child safety seats are funded by Kohl’s Cares®.

This event is open to all who are interested. For more information, please call Safe Kids Florence at (843) 777-2592.
