As a part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, Beasley Allen sponsored a Seat Check Saturday event in partnership with Safe Kids USA and the Alabama Department of Public Health. The event, held Saturday, Sept. 25, provided parents and child caregivers an opportunity to have their child safety seats installed or inspected at no cost.

Qualified seat installation experts inspected 50 child safety seats from 9 a.m.-noon at The Shoppes at EastChase in Montgomery. This was part of National Seat Check Saturday, with similar events held throughout the country.
