Fire department lends hand with child seats

The Sturgeon Bay Fire Department is doing its part to help make sure children driving in car seats are doing so safely. According to the Journal of Pediatrics, 95 percent of parents made mistakes when installing their child safety seats and positioning their babies in them. Issues included twisted straps, loose harnesses, and incorrect seat belt and anchor slots. Sturgeon Bay Assistant Fire Chief Kalin Montevideo is a certified child passenger safety technician and helps parents make sure their car seats are installed and used properly. She recommends everyone with a child in a car seat get theirs checked out.

The Sturgeon Bay Fire Department conducts child safety seat installation and checks by appointment only at its East Side Fire Station. Montevideo recommends bringing your child to make sure everything is used and fits appropriately.
