You buckle up your child in their child seat, and figure they're safe, but that might not be the case.   It might be too old, or not fitted right.   

Six years ago, Lakeview Ford owner Vince Pavone reached out to the community to host a child car seat safety program, and partnered up with Early Childhood Connections and Kat Isaacson.  Kat is a family coach with Early Childhood Connections and the Calhoun Intermediate School District.  She talked with 95.3 WBCK's Tim Collins on Friday.

  • There are a limited number of replacement seats, free of charge, on a first-come first-served basis.
  • The number of free seats available depends on the state grants received in a given year.

The two events that were held at Lakeview Ford-Lincoln this past year helped get 137 children safely secured in a properly installed child seat.  Countless others were checked and rechecked to make sure our children are safe.
