The next child seat inspection is Oct. 4 from 5-7 p.m. at The Learning House Preschool. The event is free.
McMinnville Police Department is urging parents to take part in National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 18-24, to ensure their child is properly restrained.“We are in the high 80 percent range of child seats not being correct in Warren County,” said McMinnville Police Lt. Mark Mara. “That’s scary. After a wreck is not the time to find out you could have done a better job at securing your child and preventing injury.”Toward that endeavor, McMinnville Police Department, McMinnville Fire Department and Tennessee Highway Patrol are working to educate on how to properly secure children by offering free inspections for parents who want to make sure they are doing everything necessary to protect their little passengers.
