Sheriff’s Office will check car seats at Barre Bicentennial
BARRE – Orleans County Sheriff Randall Bower announced that the Barre Town Park will host a Child Car Seat Check Point Event from 4 to 8 p.m. on Saturday during Barre’s Bicentennial Celebration.
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, Bower said.
The Sheriff’s Office will have certified child passenger safety technicians available to inspect car/booster seats to assure that children are in the correct seat for their size and age. If you have any questions, please contact Sgt. Kevin Colonna at 585-589-5527 or Kevin.Colonna@orleanscountyny.gov.
The Barre Town Park is located at 4594 Oak Orchard Rd.
