CHP to hold child car seat safety event Friday in Eureka

EUREKA - With thanksgiving week right around the corner and travelers on the road to visit loved ones, the CHP says now is the time to make sure your child car seat is installed correctly.

In partnership with the Humboldt County Child Passenger Safety Program and State Farm Insurance, the CHP will conduct a child car seat checkup event Friday, November 7 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the K-Mart parking lot - 4325 South Broadway in Eureka.

Parents and caregivers should bring their vehicle, owner’s manual, car seat and instruction booklet along with any child using the seat. Plan to spend around 30 minutes at the event and possibly longer if there are several children.
