Marshalltown, Hy-Vee - The Marshall County Sheriff's Office and Marshalltown Police Department will be joining forces with Marshalltown Hy-Vee to host a FREE Child Safety Seat Check-Up Event this Saturday, April 26th from 2:00-6:00 PM at the Marshalltown Hy-Vee. Certified Technicians will be on hand to offer free hands-on inspections and installations, replacements of expired or damaged child safety seats, or just to answer general child passenger safety questions. Parents or caregivers are encouraged to stop by and have their child seats checked by a technician.
There have been two major recalls recently issued by Graco and Evenflo. This recall affects the harness buckles not releasing properly on many of their newer seats. This can be a serious safety issue in the event of a crash or vehicle fire where you need to quickly remove the child from the safety seat. These recalls affect thousands of seats in this area. Our Technicians can check if your seat is included in the recall and assist with ordering and replacing the defective parts.
There will be a limited number of free replacement seats available for those who have damaged or expired seats, or who have financial limitations preventing the purchase of proper child safety seats. To qualify for a free seat, the children must be present in the vehicle and the seat must be installed by a Technician in that vehicle. There will be popcorn and educational materials provided to parents and children at this event.
If you cannot make the event but need assistance with a child safety seat installation or replacement contact the Marshalltown Police Communications Center at 641-754-5725 and they can put you in touch with one of the five Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians in the Sheriff's Office or Police Department.
Any further questions can be addressed to MCSO Traffic Safety Officer, Deputy Ben Veren, at 641-754-6380 or email@example.com.
