AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - With Sept. 18-24 designated as National Child Passenger Safety Week, local parents can get free help from state experts.

The Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and Department of Public Safety are offering free seat checks in selected areas across Georgia during the week.

Georgia Highway Patrol and the Department of Public Health are teaming up to make sure parents know how to safely secure their kids.

Georgia’s Consumer Protection Division has a chart on its website showing the age, weight, height limits, and the type of seat your child needs.

South Carolina’s Department of Public Safety has a similar chart on its website.

The experts will be in Augusta at Buy Buy Baby, 242 Robert C Daniel Jr. Parkway, from 2-4 p.m. Sept. 22.

And the Grovetown Police Department will be offering a similar program from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 24 at Grovetown City Hall, 103 Old Wrightsboro Road.

Burgers and hot dogs will be available at that event.

Through checks like these, parents can often learn how to properly install and use the seats and make sure they haven’t been damaged or recalled.
