Get your child's car seat inspected

We Remember, Inc. will host a child passenger safety seat inspection station June 19-21 at the Wal-Mart at 13300 Cortez Blvd.

All those who have children and child safety seats in their vehicles are encouraged to have their vehicles inspected by a nationally-certified child passenger safety seat inspector, including parents who are sure theirs are properly installed. Studies show that four out of five child safety seats are installed incorrectly, which may possibly result in injuries or death in case of an accident.

Weather permitting, the station will be set up in the parking lot from 2 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, from noon to 4 p.m. Friday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 21.

Those interested must sign up for a scheduled time slot at the customer service desk inside Wal-Mart.

We Remember, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness through education, public speaking and providing limited assistance to victims and survivors of drunk driving. All donations are tax-deductible.
