National Child Passenger Safety Week Event in Tioga County

Last Updated: 9/21/2018

National Child Passenger Safety Week is September 23rd-29th. This year, Tioga County Public Health is teaming up with Holiday Inn Express and McDonald's to hold a Free Car Seat Check Event.

Did you know that 90% of car seats are installed or used incorrectly? By getting your child’s seat checked, you can feel confident that your child is safe while riding in your car.

When: Thursday, September 27th, 3:00-6:00pm
Where: Holiday Inn Express, 20 Hickories Park Road, Owego, NY 13827
Cost: FREE!

McDonald's will be giving out coupons for a free Happy Meal for any child who has a seat checked at the event!

There will be Certified Car Seat Technicians on hand to check for:
• Correct Car Seat Installation
• Car Seat Fit for Your Child
• Expired and/or Damaged Car Seats

Tioga County Public Health will have car seats on-hand to replace any seats that are found to be expired or do not properly fit your child; these seats are replaced at no cost to the family. Replacement seats are available for families living in Tioga County. Residents from surrounding counties are invited to come get their seats checked.

For additional information, please contact Kylie Holochak at 607-687-8612 or .

This event is made possible with a grant from the Floyd Hooker Foundation, a grant from the Community Foundation of South Central New York, and funding from the National Highway Safety Administration with a grant from the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.
