Health department gives free child safety seats

February 8, 2006

Cook County - Next week is Child Passenger Safety Week, and a South Georgia health department is making sure kids are buckled up correctly.

The Cook County Health Department is giving free child safety seats to families in their community. Officers with Adel Police Department are also offering classes to show parents the proper way of buckling their kids up.

If you're interested in getting a free safety seat, call the Cook County Health Department. "It isn't just open to the general public, it does have to be a family in need and the family will be interviewed through the Cook County Department of Family and Children Services in coordination with our health department and the local police department," said Jennifer Steedley.

According to SAFE KIDS of Georgia, eight of 10 child safety seats are not installed correctly.
