Patrol Offers Information On Car Seats

Kurtz, Vincent 495 Clarinda, IASheldon, Iowa — The Iowa State Patrol is instituting a new educational program designed to help educate parents on the proper installation and use of child car seats.

Trooper Vince Kurtz joined Wayne and Aaron on the KIWA Morning Show Tuesday morning, and talked about being fresh from training for the new program.

He says a lot of confusion exists about how to install and use child safety seats properly.

Kurtz says that, while hospitals provide training on using seats for infants, as the child grows, there’s a lot of conflicting information about when one should change from the rear-facing seat to a front-facing seat.

Trooper Kurtz is an Iowa State Patrol Public Resource Officer, who works out of Iowa State Patrol Post 6 in Spencer.
