Monthly Car Seat Inspection Station Opens in Colorado Springs Fire Department
In partnership with the Colorado Springs Fire Department, Safe Kids Colorado Springs has opened a new monthly car seat inspection station! The inspection station is located at Station 8, 3737 Airport Road, in Colorado Springs. It is open every 3rd Tuesday of each month from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. At our first event on November 20, we inspected 11 car seats and found a 91% misuse rate! The fire department is graciously allowing us to use their indoor bays year-round to not only provide coverage in the event of cold or inclement weather but also a more controlled environment to keep families safe during the inspection. Please discourage phone calls to the fire department – they are simply hosting the event and are not available to schedule appointments or to check car seats. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 719-305-SAFE (7233) or by sending an email to Suzanne.Grace@childrenscolorado.org. We will have an option to schedule appointments online in the near future! Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians and Instructors are welcome and encouraged to participate!
