LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -If you need help installing your child's car seat properly, you are in luck.

The Comanche County Health Department and Safe Kids Oklahoma will be installing car seats Thursday in the Health Department's parking lot, 1010 SW Sheridan Rd. The event will run from 10 a.m. until noon. The event is held once every three months.

Health educator Marquise Bishop says this event is important because it is vital to teach families how to keep their children safe.

"Eighty percent of car seats are installed incorrectly. Four out of five car seats are installed incorrectly. Safety is important to our community. It is important statewide. Our children's safety is important," Bishop said.

Car seats will be given away to those who are receiving public assistance and do not have one. A $10 co-pay charge does apply. You must have proof of receiving assistance and the child present at the time of installation.
