Child Passenger Safety Week: Keep Young Ones Safe

Child Passenger Safety Week: Keep Young Ones Safe”

The City of Batavia Fire Department today announced it will be participating in National Child Passenger Safety week (September 17-23).

Child Passenger Safety Technician courses planned for October 2017. Certified child passenger safety technicians will be on hand from 10 am-2 pm to check auto seats for proper installation, and educate parents and caregivers on how to choose the right auto seat for their family, and install them properly in their vehicles.

The event is open to the public.

In Michigan, booster seat use has remained below 50 percent for children four to seven years old.

"It is important to register vehicle seats with the manufacturer so parents can be notified in the event of a recall", the agencies say.

Children under 2 years old or weighing less than 30 lbs. must ride in a rear facing vehicle seat.

Each year in NY nearly 3,000 kids up to the age of 13 are treated at hospitals for injuries from a motor vehicle crash.

The event will take place at 5366 Virginia Beach Blvd. Children older than 8 years of age and weighing 60 lbs. can use a safety belt or a booster seat.

On Tuesday, Driscoll's Injury Prevention team will be giving out auto seats to those families in need. It also provides an opportunity to take questions about the child passenger seat law.

Once the rear-facing size limit is reached, the child is ready to travel in a forward-facing auto seat with a harness and tether.

Motor vehicle crashes are a leading killer of children, according to NHTSA, and fatalities are rising. Children 2 years of age to 5 years of age or weighing less than 40 lbs. must use a child restraint that has a 5-point harness.
