Methodist Healthcare to host car seat safety check

September 21, 2022:- Methodist Healthcare is asking parents, grandparents, and every individual caring for children to get their car seats professionally inspected by a certified child safety technician.

The safety check will be carried out on National Seat Check Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon on September 24 at the following areas:

  • Methodist Healthcare Ministries at 4507 Medical Drive
  • Methodist Healthcare | Stone Oak at 1139 Sonterra Boulevard
  • Dixon Health & Wellness Center at 4212 E. Southcross

As road injuries are the top cause of preventable deaths and harms to children in the US, technicians at the event will help assure car seats are correctly installed to prevent injuries from occurring due to inappropriate installation.

With the proper induction of car seats, parents and guardians can decline the risk of death by as much as 71%, according to a release from Methodist Healthcare.

Methodist Healthcare officials promoted the public to attend the event as the release expressed that more than half of the car seats are not used or installed perfectly.
