Child Safety Seat Checkpoint signThe Clinton Fire Department’s monthly car seat checkpoint is coming up Tuesday, December 1, from 5pm til 8pm.  The event, held at Clinton Fire Station number one (across from Big Lots),..  is inside the fire truck bays so rain or shine, we will be checking seats. Technicians from the Clinton Fire Dept., Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, Anderson County EMS, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and theSafe Kid’s Coalition will be on hand to check out your child’s car seat.

Statistics show that over eighty percent of all child passenger seats are not installed correctly, potentially putting the child at greater risk in the event of a vehicle crash.  Our certified technicians will inspect the actual seat, will install it correctly and will educate the parent or guardian how to properly install the seat.  If there is a problem with the child’s seat that we deem unsafe, a replacement seat will be made available free of charge. Our techs will also update you on new laws and recommendations to make your child as safe as possible. With support from the City officials and the fire dept command staff combined with the efforts of our partners, this event is one hundred percent free to the public and all are encouraged to attend.  If there are any questions, contact Daniel Adams at the fire station (865) 457-2131.
