National Child Passenger Safety Week

This is National Child Passenger Safety Week and September 21st has been designated as National Seat Check Saturday. If you have children who use car seats, this is a good opportunity to visit a child safety seat inspection station and have a certified technician inspect your car seat to make sure it is properly installed. It’s also a chance to get hands-on advice at no cost.

Here is a list of safety check locations, searchable by state: http://www.nhtsa.gov/apps/cps/index.htm

Please share this information with parents you know. Thanks and have a good day!

Look Before You Lock

It’s been a hot summer and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is making a push to remind parents not to leave their little ones in the car.

You may think it’s second nature to get your child out of the back seat but every year children are left in hot cars and sadly, some die as a result.

Click on the ‘Where’s Baby?’ photo to check out some helpful information for parents and anyone who’s in a line of work that involves interaction with parents.

Please help spread the word about the danger of leaving children in cars. The consequences can be deadly, but they are also very preventable. Look before you lock.
