Experts offering car seat check on Saturday

Wed., Aug. 26, 2009, 7:51 a.m.

A free child car seat safety check is being offered on Saturday at Wal-Mart in Airway Heights from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Parents can bring their seats and vehicles to the free check and have a team of nationally certified technicians go over their equipment and the proper use of it.

Older car seats can be recycled at the event through a partnership between the county’s child passenger safety team and FedEx, according to Spokane Police Officer Teresa Fuller.

Materials in seats deteriorate over time, and seats typically expire after six years, Fuller said.
