Free Car Seat Safety Check Dec. 16 Mercy Hospital

Buffalo, NY­— and Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, in conjunction with State Senator Tim Kennedy, Safe Kids WNY, and EPIC, will be hosting a FREE Car Seat Safety Check on Saturday, December 16 from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the hospital, 565 Abbott Rd., Buffalo, NY 14220. The safety check will be conducted by certified car seat technicians on the first floor of the Mercy parking ramp, with additional activities and refreshments in the Marion Professional Center.

Please bring all children who ride in a car seat to this event. Children must be present to properly check the fit of each car seat. A generous grant through the SafeKids Buckle-Up program allows us to ensure that each child rides home in a car seat that is safe and properly adjusted for their height and weight. The event is free and open to the public; all parents, grandparents, or anyone who transports a child in a car seat are welcome to attend.

Car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death for children. Help reduce the risk by making sure your car seats are safe by attending this free event. Registration is required. Call (716)447-6205 to reserve your spot or visit www.chsbuffalo.org/events.
