Sheriff’s Office, Albion PD will do car seat checks at Strawberry Festival

Staff Reports Posted 5 June 2018 at 9:48 am

The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office in collaboration with Albion Police Department will host a child car seat check point on Saturday during the Strawberry Festival.

Certified child passenger safety technicians will be available from 1 to 5 p.m. on Park Street at the County Courthouse parking lot. They will inspect car/booster seats to assure children are in the correct seat for their size and age.

According to data, vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ranging from 1 to 13 years of age. Preventative measures, such as proper installation of car seats, boosters and seat belts can lower many deaths and injuries. Informing and instructing parents and caregivers on child safety and proper installation of car seats is critical to saving young lives.

If you have any questions, please contact Sgt. Kevin Colonna at 585-589-5527 or
