WARSAW — The Warsaw-Wayne Fire Territory Board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 5, revolved around the success of the recent Car Seat Clinic.
On Aug. 19, Martin’s Super Market hosted a public safety day that included the annual Car Seat Clinic. During the four hour event, 58 car seats were inspected. Nine free car seats were given away to families and 11 old car seats were destroyed due to being found expired, recalled or broken. One of the expired seats was found to have been from 2003.
“It was a great team event, we think the turnout was wonderful,” said Fire Chief Michael Wilson. “It was really, really well taken.”
The event is a combined effort between the fire department, Lutheran EMS and Kosciusko Community Hospital. KCH also promotes the car seat education to new mothers while at the hospital.
Public education doesn’t stop with the Car Seat Clinic. This Saturday, the department is hosting the annual Family Safety Day at Central Park in Warsaw. Almost 60 different booths will open for the public to visit and learn about different safety issues. Wilson hopes to have 4,000 people in attendance.
