The Estevan Fire and Rescue hosted a car seat clinic Thursday morning and had a great turnout. The clinic was a free drop-in clinic that ran from 8 am - 12 noon. The clinic was a chance for parents to stop in and have their child's car seat checked by a car seat technician to ensure it was secured properly to help keep the child safe.
"Miss use rates of children's car seats are north of 90%, so almost everyone," shared Travis Holeha, Child Traffic Safety Coordinator from the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute out of Saskatoon.
"Even the best meaning, well-researched parents are usually doing at least one thing that could be corrected. Almost everyone can use a little bit of help and the reason for that is because every vehicle is different, each car seat is different and every child is different."
