The community is invited to attend a free car seat clinic from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Astoria Fire Department, 555 30th St.

Ninety-five percent of all installed child passenger safety seats and 41 percent of booster seats inspected in Clatsop County in 2008 were misused and incorrectly installed in vehicles. Car seat clinics are designed to help individuals understand the need to put their children in the appropriate child passenger safety seat and safety belt. Certified child passenger safety technicians will educate parents and caregivers on how to install and adjust their car seats properly, check to make sure their car seat is not recalled and educate everyone on the Oregon law.

For information, contact Tara Constantine at the Astoria Fire Department at (503) 325-2345, ext. 10.
