Essex County is looking to better help parents keep their young children safe while on the roads.
To do that, they will be holding a Child Safety Seat Check event through the Essex County Sheriff’s Department May 25, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Walmart Supercenter, 1134 Wicker St., in Ticonderoga.
Essex County Community Resources Youth Program Coordinator Daniel E. Sadowski said this event was the first in a new initiative to help parents with young children throughout the summer months.
“Our goal is to provide this service for as many people as we can to help educate them on the dangers of having an improperly installed child safety seat,” Sadowski said. “We will attempt to hold a check event pretty much once a month throughout the different towns of Essex County through the end of summer.”
For more information on the May 25 event or for questions regarding child seat safety, contact the Essex County Traffic Safety Office at 873-3630.
The Child Passenger Safety Program is sponsored by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.
