Don't make your vehicle a target
Protect your Vehicle: Crime Prevention Tips
By Ranger Brandy Hanusosky

Misfortune can strike anyone anywhere. Thefts from a vehicle can happen while you are at work, at the park, at the store, and even at your own home. If the vehicle is forcibly entered, you will have to pay for repairs or insurance fees in addition to the loss of the stolen items. One of the best ways not to become a victim is to plan ahead carefully and follow some commonsense safety precautions in your daily routine.

Child Safety Seat Inspections

The Ranger Department has a certified technician who can discuss and demonstrate proper harnessing and installation techniques for both rear facing and forward facing child safety seats, and make sure you know how to install the child safety seat in your vehicle.  Emphasis is also placed on booster seats for those children who are too big for a harnessed child safety seat, but too small to fit in a vehicle seat belt. 

The FREE inspections are conducted by appointment only and can be scheduled with Ranger Brandy Hanusosky by email or by calling 440-358-7290.
