Car seat check stations available at Lake Stevens Fire


May 9, 2011

Did you know car crashes are the leading cause of death for children from three to 14 years old? Many of these deaths can be prevented.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), placing children in age- and size-appropriate car seats and booster seats reduces serious and fatal injuries by more than half.

A car seat check station is held at Lake Stevens Fire on the first Monday of every month by appointment.

Lake Stevens Fire partners with Marysville Fire District and Safe Kids Snohomish County to help you properly fit your car seat and to give you best practice information to facilitate safe traveling with your children.

A second seat check station is available at Marysville Fire District, Station 66 on the third Monday of every month. Lake Stevens Police also offers car seat checks during office hours and encourages citizens to set up an appointment in advance.

To schedule a car seat check, please feel free to call Public Educator Alison Caton at 425.334.3034 or Lake Stevens Police at 425.334.9537. Travel safely.
