School of Applied Technology Hosts Annual Car Care Awareness Day

Students enrolled in the Automotive Trades curriculums at Alfred State College will celebrate National Car Care Month in April by hosting their annual Car Care Awareness Day on Saturday, April 19, 2008, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. in freshman shop on the School of Applied Technology Campus, Wellsville, with a variety of FREE services.  Signs will be posted to direct participants.

Community members are encouraged to bring their cars and light trucks to campus for the following FREE check-ups:  lights, fluids, tires, battery, belts and pulleys, and an under-hood inspection.  Every car that goes through the inspection process will also receive a car wash FREE of charge. 

As an added feature, the ACCORD (Allegany County Community Opportunities and Rural Development) Corp. will offer car seat inspections-with the help of the NYS Police-where they will check for the appropriate fit and installation of the car seats.

Additionally, leading automotive manufacturers and local repair shop owners will be on hand to display new products and answer questions. 

For the cars' drivers, Alfred State College nursing students will perform FREE blood pressure checks.

For additional information, please call the Automotive Trades Department at (585) 593-6270, ext. 3117 or (607) 587-3117.
