Get your child car seats checked for free in La Crosse

Gundersen to host "Car Seat Checkup"

An event is making travel safer for kids in the La Crosse area.

Gundersen Health System’s free “Car Seat Checkup” has certified installers check over your children’s seats. Local injury prevention specialists say car seats are crash tested with everything installed correctly, so knowing how to install the seat is important.

“There’s so many different parts to using car seats that in this county we see anywhere from 6 to 9 out of 10 people are getting at least one thing wrong when they’re using their car seat,” said Gundersen Health System Trauma and Injury Prevention Coordinator Megan Anderson.

The next Car Seat Checkup is this Saturday at Fire Station Number Three in La Crosse. The event goes from ten in the morning to two in the afternoon.
