In partnership with the Independence Police Department, this free event will include finger printing, car seat safety checks, and additional resources and safety tips for interested parents. Parents and caregivers of infants to school aged children are invited to stop by Burlington between 12:30 and 3 p.m. Aug. 8 at its Independence location, 11910 E. U.S. 40.

According the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, three out of four car seats are not used correctly, needlessly exposing children to an increased risk of critical injury. Burlington is hosting this free event because navigating the world of child safety and the wealth of resources available can be confusing and overwhelming.
