UPMC to Offer Free Car Seat Safety Checks

Thursday, June 12, UPMC Mercy will offer free car seat safety checks to parents. Nurse Educator Michelle Burchesky explains that certified UPMC associates will inspect child safety and booster seats to verify proper installation and check if the car seat has been recalled by its manufacturer. The safety checks will be held in the Gibbon Street entrance to the parking garage at Duquesne University from 3 to 6:30 p.m. It is encouraged that participants schedule an appointment, but drive-ups will be accepted, as well. To schedule an appointment, call 412-881-9221. Pennsylvania State Law requires that all children under age 4 must be in a child safety seat when riding in a car, and ages 4-8 must use a booster seat.
