Installing a child's safety seat is one of the most important jobs a parent has. Making sure it is done properly can be challenging.

Louisiana State Police are here to help.

According to a press release, LPD spokesman Trooper Thomas Gossen says the Louisiana Passenger Safety Task Force and UMC New Orleans will be holding a child passenger safety seat check-up event on Saturday, January 23, at 2486 West Congress Street in Lafayette (near BJ's Pizza). The event will last from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This is a FREE event and you don't have to make an appointment. Just show up! And weather will not be a factor as this event will happen rain or shine!

One thing to note: this is not a seat give-away event.
