Target to Host Operation Safe Child Event

Target in cooperation with the Broome County Sheriff's Office and the Broome County Traffic Safety Program will be holding an Operation Safe Child Event.

This event will include free child safety seat installations by Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians, as well as free educational materials and guidance on child safety seats. If your car seat is expired, recalled or in poor condition, a new seat will be given while supplies last.

Families that are interested should bring their child safety seat(s), their child/children, the vehicle the child safety seat will be installed in, the car seat manual and the vehicle manual. Inspections will be done on a first come, first serve basis.

The Broome County Sheriff's Office will also be offering free Child Safe Cards. These cards consist of the child's name, biographical information, photo and fingerprint image. These cards can be used in conjunction with the NYS Amber Alert Program and the NYS DCJS Missing Child Alert Program.

Child safety seat inspections will take place in the parking lot of Target, located at 3112 Vestal Parkway East, Vestal, on Saturday, June 28th, from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. The Safe Child Card Program can be found inside Target and will be offered from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
