Sevierville Fire Department to Check Child Car Safety Seats for Proper Installation

The City of Sevierville Fire Department has scheduled a Child Car Safety Seat Inspection from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at Fire Station 2, 423 Collier Drive in Sevierville.

Sevierville Fire Department firefighters will also be available to provide fire safety tips, demonstrate proper use of fire extinguishers and installation of smoke alarms.

Nationally, over 90% of child car safety seats are improperly installed. In fact, over 40% of child fatalities in traffic accidents are due to improperly installed child car safety seats. Certified Sevierville Fire Department technicians will be available to perform inspections of the seats, demonstrate proper installation techniques and offer general assistance.

Inspectors have also learned that many child car safety seats are no longer safe due to past accidents, the age of the seat, manufacturer recalls or missing parts.

Please join the Sevierville Fire Department in this effort to keep our children as safe as possible while riding in a car.
