MONTOURSVILLE – Area safety advocates have scheduled a free, child safety seat inspection for next Thursday, November 13, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. inside of the Hughesville fire hall on Railroad Street in Hughesville, Lycoming County.Parents and others who transport child passengers under eight years old are encouraged to take advantage of certified child safety seat technicians at this inspection. Most child seat installations are not correctly secured in some manner.

It may take up to 20 minutes to inspect each child seat for safe installation – infant seats may take longer. Parents and others are asked to bring their child seat and vehicle manuals to the inspection. Child safety seats over six years old should be replaced before attending this inspection.

Safety groups who are making this event possible are:
* Hughesville Volunteer Fire Company
* Safe Kids Lycoming County
* PennDOT District 3-0
* Community Traffic Safety Project
* Pennsylvania Department of Health.

For more information, interested persons may call PennDOT’s District 3-0 Safety Press Officer, Mike Hess at 570-368-4344.
