All parents know the importance of putting young kids securely into car seats whenever they hit the road. If you're a new parent, it can be challenging, and a bit intimidating, to put a car seat into your vehicle as you want to make sure you're doing it properly to keep your kids safe.

I remember bringing our first baby home for the first time, I must've tripled checked the that his seat was secure and then triple checked that he was properly buckled up. Yeah, I was a bit paranoid. Car seat safety clinics can put any parents mind at ease and they're a great hands-on learning experience.

Car seat safety clinics are free and they allow parents and caregivers to have their child safety seat inspected by a certified child passenger technician. The child passenger safety technician inspect and assist parents and caregivers in installing their child safety seat.

Parents across the Northland can take advantage of another car seat safety clinic as the Duluth Fire Department is hosting their second car seat clinic of the year in May.
