Upstate Organization teaches child safety during summer months

It’s the time of year for parents to start thinking about things like summer safety including preventing injuries.

Issues range from overheating, to riding in car seats safely and bumps and bruises while playing sports.

AnMed will host its 10th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic at the Women’s and Children’s hospital on E. Greenville Street from 9 AM until noon.

It’s free and children should bring an adult with them as well as their favorite stuffed animal.

Medical professionals will perform some procedures that can be scary for some younger kids like getting a shot or getting their heart rate checked.

The idea is to allow children to see that these routine procedures are not scary.

To register for this event. 

Police and firemen are also inspecting car seats with Jackie McCall from Safe Kids Anderson.

McCall said that 90 percent of all car seats she inspects are installed incorrectly.

It’s at the Women’s and Children’s campus on East Greenville Street Saturday from 9 AM until noon.
