The Cortland County Health Department announced that there will be a child safety seat event in the county this weekend.

The event will be held this Saturday (Sept. 23) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cortlandville Fire Department at 999 Rt. 13.

Part of National Passenger Safety Week (Sept. 18-24), the event will have certified child passenger technicians on hand to check a child’s seat for proper installation, harnessing and the overall safety of the seat.

“There’s so much to get done every day, but car seat safety should always be a priority,” noted in a post by the county health department.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers parents the opportunity to find the right car seat for their children’s age and size. It can be viewed by clicking here.
