BANGOR — Installing a car seat can be a challenge, but it’s important to get the installation right so that the car seat can work properly in case of a crash. Fortunately, free help is available for parents who have a new car seat, may have a recalled car seat, or do not know how to use a car seat properly.

Eastern Maine Medical Center, Safe Kids Maine, and Quirk Chevrolet are partnering up to offer free safety checks 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, May 26, at Quirk Chevrolet, 293 Hogan Road.

The expert technicians at this car seat safety event will check for recalls and thoroughly evaluate every car seat to ensure they are the right size.

Making an appointment is not required but highly recommended by visiting MaineSeatCheck.org.

This free car seat inspection event is made possible thanks to the support of EMHS Foundation Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
