February 18, 2000

RANSON, W.Va. - Jefferson Memorial Hospital and Right From the Start will sponsor a free car seat safety class Thursday, Feb. 24, from 10:30 a.m. to noon and Saturday, Feb. 26, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Crane's Meadow Apartments Community Room in Charles Town, W.Va.

The law requires that from birth to 3 years of age, children have to be in a federally approved child safety seat. From 3 years old to their ninth birthday, they can be put in a seat belt, although it is recommended that children remain in some form of child restraint until they weigh 60 pounds.

Registration is not required for the class but it is recommended. For information, contact Right From the Start at 1-304-728-1716.
