Free car-seat checks this weekend at the TCC

Eighty per cent of children’s car seats or booster seats are installed incorrectly.

To help parents, the City of Kamloops has partnered with Jennifer Harbaruk, a certified child passenger safety educator, to offer drop-in car seat safety checks on Sunday, Jan. 20, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Tournament Capital Centre during Unplug and Play Week organized by Literacy in Kamloops.

During the drop-in-program, parents will learn the ins and outs of car seat safety and how to protect their children in motor vehicles.

Parents will receive instruction and hands-on installation and techniques.

The TCC is also offering a free Mother Goose Swim on that day from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Donations are accepted and proceeds will go to Literacy in Kamloops.
