Do YOU know if your child's car seat is safe? Find out at a free car seat checkup event! The
checkup will be held on June 21, 2018 from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the Dunkirk Volunteer
Fire Department at 3170 West Ward Road.
At the checkup event, you will learn if the car seat is the correct one for your child and if it is
installed properly in the vehicle. You will also learn how to harness your child into the seat
correctly. Car seat technicians will review any recalls associated with the car seat, the history of
the seat and the crash history of the car to ensure safety.
To prepare for the checkup you must first make an appointment by contacting Jess Jones at the
Calvert County Sheriff's Office. She can be reached by calling: 410-535-2800.
• Arrive with the car seat(s) already installed in the vehicle, to the best of your ability, or
read through the manual of a new car seat.
• Bring both the vehicle and safety seat owner's manuals with you.
• Be prepared to ask questions and be involved in the seat checking process.
• Bring an additional adult to supervise the child(ren), if present for the event, while you
work with seat technicians.
• Expect each inspection to take approximately 45 minutes.
This event is a partnership of the Calvert County Sheriff's Office and the Dunkirk Volunteer Fire
Department. Similar car safety seat checkups are held regularly throughout Maryland. To learn
more about this event or to find one near you, call Maryland Kids in Safety Seats (KISS) at 800-
370-SEAT, or visit
