The Oak Ridge Police Department, in partnership with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, will conduct a free drive-through car seat check again on Wednesday.
There was a car seat check on Tuesday, October 22, and another on Wednesday, October 23, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Officers will be set up across the street from Oak Ridge Preschool, located at 304 New York Avenue, a press release said. Parents and caregivers are invited to stop by with no need to pre-register, the press release said.
This safety checkpoint is an annual event for the Oak Ridge Police Department. Car seats will be checked for manufacturer recalls and examined for proper installation by certified technicians. Crews will also distribute educational material about car seats, the press release said.
East Tennessee Children’s Hospital advises anyone planning to attend a car seat inspection to bring their car seat instruction booklet and vehicle owner’s manual if possible.
“Also, to make the process more efficient, please install the child restraint seat to the best of your ability before attending the inspection,” the press release said.
For more information, call the Oak Ridge Police Department at (865) 425-3504.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
