Yes, it’s nice out. Here are a few important reminders to protect yourself and others from spreading COVID-19:

🌳 Remember, parks are CLOSED but you can still enjoy the outdoors by walking the dog, going for a jog or doing yard work.

🚫 Play dates and garage parties standing 6 feet apart from each other is NOT considered social distancing. Zoom chat with your buddies instead.

👋 Social distancing won’t stop the Midwest wave. You Betcha, we encourage it!

🛒 If you need to go to the grocery store, wear a face covering. If you have a cloth mask, make sure you wash it.

🧼 Wash your hands OFTEN and wipe down surfaces with a disinfecting cleaner.

🗑 If you wear gloves or a mask you should use and dispose of them PROPERLY to prevent cross contamination. Parking lots, shopping carts and roads are NOT garbage cans. Don’t be a litter bug.

🏡 And most importantly, STAY HOME. Staying home saves lives and slows the spread of COVID-19. Every action you take will either help contain or spread the virus.

☀️ Don't let a nice day stop the progress we’ve made on flattening the curve.

We all play an important role in slowing the spread of this virus in our community. We’re here to do our part. Can we count on you to do yours?

Please point me to the LAW that says we cannot have people on our lawns or driveways.

Can we still walk on the I & M canal trails. Or is that considered a Park that’s closed

finally here is them telling people that parties at the house and gatherings drinking outside with neighbors is a no no. No matter how many times we said to some , we have diseases and are very high risk.

Car Seat Inspections & Installations

Illinois Child Passenger Protection Act
The Child Passenger Protection Act requires that all children under age 8 be properly secured in an appropriate child safety restraint system. This includes the use of booster seats, which must only be used with a lap/shoulder safety belt. If the back seat of the vehicle is not equipped with lap/shoulder type safety belts, a child weighing more than 40 pounds may be transported in the back seat without a booster seat, secured with a lap belt only.

The Channahon Fire Protection District staffs 2 certified Car Seat Technicians to assist and educate the community regarding proper car safety seat use and installation. Child safety seat installations can be done when a certified technician is on duty and available.

Inspections and installations are by appointment.

Call 1-815-467-6767 to schedule an appointment.
