Valdosta - As Jenni Holt buckles up her 11-month-old daughter Caroline, she's making sure her child is safe and secure for their ride home. She has just been taught the proper way to install her child's safety seat.

But, safety seat technicians say about 90 percent of car seats are installed wrong. "They usually don't have it tight enough, and its just too mobile," said David Rowe.

But technicians are working to help keep your children safe by offering free safety seat inspections. "The most important thing to do is make sure you have the right seat for your child's weight," said Rowe. "There are a variety of seats that require different installation for different sized kids."

After her inspection, Holt is more confident little Caroline is protected. "I feel good because I pretty much had it right before but now I know exactly how it should be," said Holt.

Valdosta fire stations two, three, and four will continue to offer free safety seat inspections to ensure your precious cargo is kept safe and sound.
