The Laurel Volunteer Fire Department, 7411 Cherry Lane, will host a car seat check and inspection event on Thursday, Feb. 14 from 1 to 5 p.m.

The inspections will take place in a designated bay in the upper level of the fire station.

Statistics show that nearly three-quarters of all car and booster seats are installed incorrectly. 

The car seat check is sponsored by the Prince George's County Police Department, Maryland Safe Kids Coalition and Prince George's Community Federal Credit Union. Inspections take about 30 minutes and appointments are not necessary.
