Safe Kids Pee Dee/Coastal, led by McLeod Health, Celebrates Motor Vehicle Safety Month with an Additional Child Safety Seat Check at Kohl’s


(9/19/12) – Safe Kids Pee Dee/Coastal, led by McLeod Health, will host a Child Safety Seat Check at Kohl’s in Florence to celebrate Motor Vehicle Safety Month following Child Passenger Week, September 16 – 22.

The event will take place Wednesday, September 26, 2012, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. in the Florence Kohl’s parking lot (3041 W. Radio Drive, Florence).

Safe Kids certified child safety seat technicians will check installation of child safety seats, correct those in need, and educate on proper installation and use. Participants should have both child safety seat and child present. Expecting parents, please bring a 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, one per car is available while supplies last. Child safety seats are funded by Kohl’s Cares for Kids.

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 Pee Dee/Coastal at (843) 777 – 5021.
