The Safe Kids Buckle Up Van is making a June stop in Eudora! Eudora Family Care is hosting a special Family Night from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18, to share important free safety, health and parenting information.
Children’s safety in the car is one of the most important components while driving. Certified child passenger safety technicians will be on hand to check child safety seats for correct installation in vehicles. An advance appointment is required for these child seat checks and can be scheduled by calling (785) 749-5800 in advance.
In addition to the child safety seat checks, bicycle safety education and a limited number of free bicycle helmets for children under age 15 will be available. Also, a nurse educator will be available to answer any questions regarding pregnancy and parenting with a young child. Free blood pressure checks will be available for adults as well.
Eudora Family Care, which is affiliated with Lawrence Memorial Hospital, is located at 600 E. 20th St. in Eudora.
