EUGENE, Ore. — Before hitting the road for the summer, it’s a good idea to make sure your child’s safety seat is correctly installed in your car—and the Eugene Police Department wants to help out.
On Saturday, the EPD will team up with the Alliance for Community Traffic Safety to present the fifth annual Car Seat Safety Clinic at the Valley River Center. Technicians will be on hand to help people install and check the installation of child safety seats. Organizers say that most child safety seats are incorrectly installed and that stopping at the clinic can help save a child’s life.
The annual event was started by Officer Chris Kilcullen in 2008 and continues in his memory. Kilcullen was killed in the line of duty in 2011.
The clinic is free and will be held in the VRC parking lot between JCPenney and Firestone Tires. It starts at 9 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m.
