Red Watch Fire Fighters from Carrow Fire Station will be joining Norfolkâ€™s Road Safety Team for a Child Car Seat safety check event. This event will be held at Tesco Harford Bridges, directly in front of the main store, on Saturday 29th November 10am â€“ 2:30pm.
Recent events have highlighted that staggeringly, up to 60% of child seats were fitted incorrectly ie, the child seat not secured properly to the vehicle, or the child not securely fastened in with the correct seat and harness adjustments made. Correct harness adjustments are crucial, particularly this time of year- if your child is wearing a thick winter coat this could prevent the harness from being pulled in close to the shoulders, this may result in a child slipping out of the harness under sudden sharp breaking.
Please come and meet your local Fire Fighters from Red Watch, and we will show your children around our fantastic Fire Engine whilst trained members of Norfolkâ€™s Road Safety team check your child car seats and offer advice.
