Free car seat safety checks offered to Macon County residents

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR - HSHS St. Mary's Hospital and Macon County Health Department officials say they will offer free car seat safety checks in Decatur on June 26.

The safety checks will take place from 12:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. at 1415 North Water Street.  Officials say motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death for children in the U.S., and that a majority of these deaths could be prevented by using age and size-appropriate car and booster seats.

Residents who wish to participate in this free event are asked to enter from Main Street.  For more information, visit www.stmarysdecatur.com.
