Car Seat Check Up event at the Jackson Fire Department

Thursday, August 11, 2022

Jackson area families wanting to make sure their children travel safely can take advantage of a free Car Seat Check Up event at the Jackson Fire Department. Firefighters are conducting the checks at the department’s Central Fire Station on Thursday, Aug. 11 from 12:30-3:00 p.m. 

Firefighters request parents or guardians bring their children with them to the event. Drive through check points will be set up at the fire station for crews to inspect seats. Firefighters will look to make sure the car seat is in proper working order, fastened to the vehicle correctly, and is a safe fit for the child. A limited number of car seat replacements are available for free if crews find a seat is unsafe for children. 

Jackson firefighters are receiving training on car seat safety from Bronson Wellness Center and the Safe Kids Coalition of Greater South Haven, a non-profit organization committed to helping families and communities prevent childhood injuries. Following successful completion of the car seat event, the Jackson Fire Department will provide regular car seat checks for the community. 

Firefighter Matt Jabkiewicz says he’s looking forward to offering this service for Jackson families. “A lot of parents may be surprised to learn that their child’s car seat is not installed properly or could be dangerous in a crash,” Jabkiewicz said. “This is a simple thing we can do to make sure children are safe as they can be while on the road.” 

The Jackson Fire Department Central Fire Station is located at 518 N. Jackson St. Contact the fire department with questions about this event by calling 517-788-4150.
