Securing your child in safety seat could prevent injuries
LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -
A south Georgia woman is
going out of her way to make sure parents are securing their children in their
car seats correctly.
Leah Gillis believes putting your child in a
car seat is important, but making sure the seat is safely secure is just as
Tuesday afternoon at the Publix in Lee County she
taught parents how to do that.
"I personally just
want to get out there with the parents and educate them as to appropriate car
seats, appropriate when to rear face, when to forward face, helping them out, I
even go as far as I've told parents I will meet them at a local retailer and
help them pick out a car seat they would like," said Leah Gillis.
