Grapevine Mills, the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in North Texas, will host “National Child Safety Seat Check Saturday” on September 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Presented by the Inter-Agency Child Safety Seat Task Force and Safe Riders Traffic Safety, a Texas Department of State Health Services program, this effort will help parents ensure that their child’s car seat is properly installed and safe to use.
“As the area’s leading shopping, dining and entertainment destination, we are excited to be a part of this program to help educate parents about child safety,” said Kerri Bear, director of marketing and business development at Grapevine Mills. “We hope that our shoppers will take advantage of the opportunity to learn about how they can protect their families.”
Child Passenger Safety Seat Technicians from various law enforcement agencies will be available to inspect and give instructions on suitable car seat installations. Parents and caregivers will also learn about the correct use of child restraint systems and seat belts. Inspection sites will be set up at Grapevine Mills’ parking lot 1C, located in front of Steak n’ Shake, across from Sun & Ski Sports.
This initiative is part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, created by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 1997 to ensure parents correctly protect their children from serious injuries or fatalities in the event of car accidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control, properly installed child safety seats reduce the risk of injury by 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for toddlers.
