March 30, 2012 -- During April 2012, fire agencies across Oregon will be hosting Child Passenger Safety Clinics at fire stations for the public. Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians and trained volunteers from the Child Safety Seat Resource Center will be available at the clinics to work one-on-one with parents and caregivers to correctly install and inspect child safety seats. Each seat takes about 30 minutes to install and check for damage, size, and age appropriateness.
