GHENT -- Parents got some free advice Saturday on how to keep their kids safe.
The Columbia County Sheriff’s Department teamed up with Sean's Run for a child safety seat check. Sean's Run is in honor of a Chatham student who was killed in a car crash.
Deputies showed parents how to properly install kid's car seats, and offered up some free car seat safety tips.
“Most times the seats are too loose,” said Sgt. Brian Molinski with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Department. “They're not secured in. They think they can just hook them in with the seatbelt, and they're free to go, which is not the case. Safety is a big thing, and that's why we're here.”
Seats were also given out to lower income families.
