Indiana University Health La Porte is participating in a statewide car seat clinic which will be held Friday, June 15 from 1 to 3 p.m. CT in the parking lot behind Legacy Building, 1300 State Street, next to the CVS on the Lincolnway side in La Porte.
To ensure car seats are age- and size-appropriate, a certified child passenger safety technician will be on hand to offer inspections on car seat safety. Existing car seats will be checked for any wear, cracks, or recalls, and car seats that do not meet safety standards will be replaced free of charge. Attendees will also receive information on child passenger safety.
The event is free and open to the public with no appointment or registration necessary. However, only a limited number of free car seats are on hand to be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Children must be present and restrained in a car seat upon arrival at the event.
