Sometimes things that seem to be a matter of good common sense often require a second pair of eyes and a refresher course. Child passenger seat safety, for instance, is of great importance and nothing that should ever be taken lightly or for granted. The Butte-Silver Bow County Fire Department knows this all too well, and that's why they continually host child/passenger safety seat clinics like the upcoming one scheduled for Wednesday, March 15th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Station No #1 in Butte (120 South Idaho Street). The clinic will focus on the correct way to use a child safety seat and provide valid information and guidance on ensuring your youngster is secure in the right one for their height and weight. Another topic that will be reviewed at the clinic is the importance of a rear-facing car seat for children two years of age and younger.

Over half of all car safety seats used around the globe are not installed correctly. Yet, as described online at Safe Kids Worldwide, the proper use of child safety seats can reduce the risk of death by 71 percent. At the Child Safety Seat Clinic this Wednesday,  use the Galena Street entrance of Station No. #1 to get hands-on help to correctly install your "precious cargo's" safety seat. Outside of the clinic and year-round, it's imperative to keep familiar with the contents of the owner's manual for your vehicle and to follow in-detail manuals for proper safety seat installation.
