Did you know that:
- 89 percent of car seats are installed in cars improperly?
- Motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths in children. In 2001, 1,579 children ages 14 and under died in motor vehicle crashes, and in 2002 an estimated 227,000 were injured.
- Young children restrained in child safety seats have an 80 percent lower risk of fatal injury than those who are unrestrained.
- Children two to five years of age using safety belts prematurely are four times more likely to suffer a serious head injury in a crash than those restrained in child safety seats or booster seats.
Our Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians were required to attend a rigorous 32 hour training session and pass a written examination before they can educate caregivers on how to properly install child car seats and teach the caregivers how to keep their children safe while riding in cars. The certification program is sponsored by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the National Child Passenger Safety Board and Safe Kids Worldwide.
The program is available on Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings. The program is free of charge, but appointments are required. Please call 513 524 5420 to schedule.
