In conjunction with "National Child Passenger Safety Week," Sunday, Sept. 18, through Saturday, Sept. 24., the Pennsylvania State Police Troop N, Hazleton will be conducting a Child Passenger Safety Seat Check-Up Event along with the Carbon County Safekids from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20 at Wal-Mart, 1731 Blakeslee Boulevard Drive East, Lehighton.

Parents are encouraged to have their seats already installed prior to coming to this event so that a Certified Child Passenger Safety technician can check the seat for proper installation and use. Technicians checking the seats are certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and will provide instructions to those who are not using their child safety seat correctly.
