Help available for carseat

Safety Spotlight

If you a new parent or it’s been a couple of years since you had to install a child’s car seat it can be frustrating. 

There are many different types and styles. Many are installed differently. Make sure it is installed correctly.  The Fort Stewart Fire Department, 767-7006, located at 1164 West 15th street can help. 

They have two certified instructors Inspector Wayne Reinhardt and Inspector Michael Gaitten. They will install it while you are watching, then remove it and have you install it to make sure you understand how to properly install it. You will need to bring the following in order for them to show you how to properly install your car seat.

-Vehicle manual.

-Car seat instructions.

Child car seats do have an expiration date, so if you get an child car seat at a garage sale or someone is nice and gives you their old one it could be expired and not in good working condition. They also recommend you register your child’s car seat online with the manufacture so you will get notices if there is a recall for a safety defect.

Your child is your greatest gift, so take the time to ensure the car seat is properly installed. You can also contact Winn Army Community hospital for help with child car seat installation.
