Car Seat Certification Course and Checkup Event May 17
(Woodland, CA) – Every day in America, millions of parents and caregivers travel with children in their vehicles. While some children are buckled properly in the correct car seats for their age and size, most are not. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, two out of three car seats are misused.
To help parents transport children as safely as possible, the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency’s Child Passenger Safety Program, along with the Woodland Police Department, will be hosting a car seat checkup event on Friday, May 17 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Woodland Police Department at 1000 Lincoln Avenue in Woodland.
Certified child passenger safety technicians will be on hand to check car seats for proper installation, and to advise parents and caregivers on how to choose the right car seat and properly install it in the vehicle. In addition, technicians can check for expiration dates and recalls of car seats and will demonstrate how to register car seats with manufacturers so parents and caregivers will be notified if there is a recall.
To learn more about this event, contact the Yolo County Child Passenger Safety Program at (530) 406-4410 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Technicians will conduct car seat checks at this event by appointment, or without an appointment on a first come, first served basis.
Funding for this program has been provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
