Sheriff’s Office will do child car seat safety check Saturday in Lyndonville
LYNDONVILLE – Orleans County Undersheriff Christopher Bourke announced Lyndonville Central School is sponsoring a Child Car Seat Check Point Event at the school bus garage, 77 Housel Ave., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
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.
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. For any questions, please contact Sgt. Kevin Colonna at 585-589-5527 or Kevin.Colonna@orleanscountyny.gov.
