RENO — The Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority’s (REMSA), in partnership with Renown Children’s Hospital, will hold a child safety seat inspection checkpoint at 10 a.m. Saturday at Renown Regional Medical Center’s Center for Advanced Medicine, 1500 E. Second St.

Each seat will be checked by nationally certified child passenger safety technicians to ensure that it is properly installed, is the appropriate seat for the age and weight of the child riding in it and that the seat has not been recalled. Parents also will receive education on the proper installation and use of car seats. The inspection is limited to 30 cars and early arrival is recommended.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 75 percent of cars inspected at checkpoints arrive with seats improperly installed.
