As part of the event, instructors from Kosair Children’s Hospital, the Owensboro Police Department and the Kentucky State Police will participate in the check. Through a grant provided by Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana, Owensboro Health Foundation is also funding the training of 10 technicians, who will earn their national child passenger safety certification as part of the event.
