Car accidents are the #1 killer of children in the US. Make sure your child, niece, nephew, or grandchild is strapped in to a proper car seat every time they ride in a vehicle. Kids should travel in a car seat in the following life stages: infancy - two years rear-facing, forward-facing in a car seat between the ages of two and eight years old, and until they are 4'9" (or 100 pounds) in a booster seat when traveling in a vehicle.

This weekend, parents and guardians can get a free car seat and have it properly installed by professional technicians. If you have a car seat but need advice or help installing it, the same free assistance will be available Saturday, November 14, from 12:30pm - 4:30pm. Go by SWLA Center For Health Services at 2000 Opelousas Street in Lake Charles to get a seat for your child.

Please note, you must pre-register prior to the event. Go online to apply now. Be sure to print or screenshot the confirmation email to present at Saturday's event. For more information, see the flyer below:
