It’s Child Passenger Safety Week in the province.

The goal for this week is to ensure that children are safe when they ride in a vehicle.

Wayne Therres of Melfort Ambulance said seats need to be properly installed.

“The idea behind this week is just to get that information out there that it is easy to install them,” said Therres. “We just want to make sure the seat is properly secured and the child is properly secured inside the seat.”

Melfort Ambulance is holding a child safety seat clinic at Melody Motors from 11am to 3pm on Saturday.

Therres said they’ll take a look at as many car seats as they can, and give out information out on child safety seats and booster seats, and what to do with expired seats.

He added that for forward facing seats, they often see tether straps that are unconnected or too loose.
