Safe Kids wraps up 2013 child seat check lanes

By Monty Thompson/KVOE News

Saturday morning was a busy one as Safe Kids Emporia held its final child seat safety check lane of the year at the Staples parking lot.

President of Safe Kids Emporia Jeff Illk says efforts are made year-round by several organizations to make sure parents are using the safest car seats possible for their children.  

Officials with the Emporia Police Department and Sheriff's Office were on hand for the check lane. Illk says the event has built a strong relationship with local law enforcement.

Several child safety seats were available for any parents looking to purchase or upgrade in order to assure all children left safer than they arrived.
