Each year, the London Police and Fire Departments look to give back to their community, usually hosting the annual National Night Out.
This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they could not hold the event, but they decided to host a City Safety Day.
The event was held Tuesday from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the London Fire Department. They performed child safety seat checks and the Kentucky Blood Center was on site for a blood drive.
Year-round, the fire and police departments offer free car seat checks. “It’s just educational we want to help continue to save lives and we love our children,” said London Police Public Affairs Officer Magen Zawko.
Zawko says most car seats are not installed properly.
