The Northampton County Sheriff's Office will be sponsoring free child safety seat inspections during the 2010 National Child Passenger Safety Week, which will be September 18-25.
The purpose of the safety seat inspection is to reinforce child seat safety. Certified technicians will inspect the seat to ensure proper seat installation, proper fit for the child, check for manufacturer recalls and check for defects.
The goal of the week is for all children and adults to be properly and safely restrained in the automobile.
The child seat safety inspections will take place at ACE Home Center in Exmore on Monday, September 20th from 4-7 PM. On Thursday, September 23rd inspections will be in the parking lot across from Little Italy in Nassawadox from 3-6 PM, and on Friday 24th, inspections will take place at the Food Lion in Cape Charles from 3-6 PM.
