Safe Kids Check-up
TAHLEQUAH, OKLAHOMA - Parents can get an extra measure of assurance that their child's car seat is both safe and safely installed, with a little help from the Cherokee Nation Marshal Service.
On Saturday, September 3, from 10 am to noon, officers with the Marshal Service will hold a Safe Kids car seat check-up event in front of the Cherokee Nation Complex in Tahlequah.
Parents may bring their child and car seat to the complex and officers will check to be sure the seat is safely installed in the vehicle. They will also help parents determine whether the car seat is the right size for the child, based on the child's height and weight versus the specifications for that model of car seat. Additionally, the officers will verify whether seats have any factory recalls or are out of date.
The event is free and open to the general public. You do not have to be a tribal member to have an officer inspect your child's seat.
