Miami Beach Fire hosts child car seat inspection

MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - The Miami Beach Fire Department invited parents to have their child car seats inspected by trained firefighters, Tuesday.

The group corrected mistakes and answered questions aiming to keep kids safe. “One out of every four child [deaths] is a fatality in a car accident,” said Miami Beach Fire Capt. Charlton Price. “To help prevent that, we started this program, and we want to help the public and help their children get and remain safe.”

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly one of every four car seats are improperly installed.
