Free child safety seat inspection slated in Alton

ALTON — State Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Godfrey, will be co-hosting a child safety seat inspection on May 18 with Riverbend Head Start & Family Services.

The inspection will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Riverbend Head Start & Family Services, located at the Alton Plaza at 1802 East Broadway in Alton.
Residents may get their car seats inspected and installed by certified car seat technicians free of charge. It is recommended to bring the child that will be sitting in the seat to the event in order to ensure size of the seat is appropriate for the age. This event is free to the public.

“We are pleased to partner with Rep. Bristow for this event. The safety of the children in our community is very important to us,” said Amy Cornell, family advocate and car seat technician at Riverbend Head Start & Family Services. “Additionally, we will be holding an open house at the Essic Robinson Head Start. Our open house will include tours of our preschool center, information about our program and enrollment, and activities”.
