Free car seat checks available at Rotherham fire station

Free car seat checks are being offered at an open day at Rotherham fire station tomorrow.

Organised by the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership, parents and carers can have child car seats checked for free as part of a fire station open day event which is due to run from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Joanne Wehrle, the Safer Roads Partnership’s Manager, said: ‘Child safety is an issue that none of us can take for granted, and keeping children safe inside the car should be a priority for any driver who has responsibility for a child passenger.”

As part of the open day on Fitzwilliam Road, Eastwood, visitors can look around fire engines and there will be music, a bouncy castle and refreshments.
