Schweyer to host child car seat safety check event

 State Rep. Peter Schweyer, D-Lehigh, is uniting with the Allentown Health Bureau for a free child car safety check vent.

The event will be held 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19 in the parking lot at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, 417 N. 7th St., Allentown.

“The single most important thing you can do to protect your children is to buckle them up properly inside vehicles,” Schweyer said.

Schweyer said technicians from the health bureau will make sure children’s car seats are properly installed.

Schweyer is encouraging people to call his office to schedule an appointment time for the car seat check. His office telephone number is 610-791-6270.
