August 24, 2012 Myrtle Beach, SC – Safe Kids Pee Dee/Coastal, led by McLeod Health, is part of a member of Safe Kids Worldwide whose mission is to prevent accidental childhood injury, a leading killer of children 14 and under. Through Safe Kids educational programs are presented on preventing heatstroke, how to fit bike helmets, overuse injuries in sports, safely storing medicines and much more.
Safe Kids Pee Dee will host Kohl's Cares Safe Seats at the Beach on Tuesday, August 28, 2012. This bi-monthly child safety seat check will take place from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. in the Myrtle Beach Kohl’s parking lot 8646 Highway 17 Bypass South in Myrtle Beach.
Safe Kids certified child safety seat technicians will check installation of child safety seats, correct those in need, and educate on proper installation and use. Participants should have both child safety seat and child present. Expecting parents should bring the seat they intend to use for their infant.
Each child safety seat technician follows a child passenger safety checklist of child safety seat qualifications to ensure the safety of your child. The technician will determine if a new child safety seat is needed. If so, 1 per car is available while supplies last. Child safety seats are funded by Kohl’s Cares for Kids.
This event is open to all who are interested. In the case of rain, the event will be cancelled. For more information, please call Safe Kids Pee Dee/Coastal at (843) 777 - 5021. We look forward to seeing you at the Kohl's Cares Safe Seats at the Beach event in the Kohl's parking lot located at 8646 Highway 17 Bypass South, in Myrtle Beach.
