Are you concerned about the infant car seat in your vehicle? The Porcupine Health Unit will take a look at it for free on Thursday from 2-6 pm at the Kapuskasing Fire Department on Brunelle Road. Public Health Nurse Melissa Stewart says the event is always well attended by parents.

“We know that at our car seat clinics there are a lot of installation errors,” she said. “So we are to educate parents so they can keep their children safe.”

Stewart says there are several issues they see when people come by for the safety check.

“The angel of the seat and the way it is installed would be one issue we see,” she said. “There is also the harness that holds the child into the seat as some of them look tangled.”

During the inspection, Health Unit Staff checks on the expiration date of the seat and makes sure it meets Transport Canada requirements.
