Did you know that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration? And that 73% of car seats are not used or installed correctly? Correctly used child safety seats can reduce the risk of injury or death by 71% according to Safe Kids. These stats are so important!
From choosing the right seat for your child to making sure it is installed safely, Safety First is making the process a bit easier for parents with their Air Protect Tour.
Safety First, (Dorel Juvenile) teamed up with Allstate Insurance Company and Safe Kids Southeastern Philadelphia coalition (led by The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia), invites families to a community fun day at the King of Prussia Specialty Care & Surgery Center this Sat. July 23rd from 9AM-12PM.
Free Car Seat Inspections
You can register for a free car seat inspection (registration is required) during the event. All parents and caregivers of young children are encouraged to attend. Register here:
Child passenger safety technicians will teach you how to correctly transport your children and to make sure that everyone in the vehicle is buckled up on every ride. (This is an educational service, not an installation service.) Through this hands-on opportunity, you will learn how to properly secure your children in their child safety seats.
Safety 1st and Allstate are also encouraging parents to bring unwanted, expired or damaged car seats to be properly recycled by Dorel Juvenile’s manufacturing plant. A special Safety 1st gift will be given to those who bring in old seats.
Event will include:
A giant inflatable tunnel for attendees to drive through to receive:
o Child safety seat checks by Safety 1st car seat technicians (registration required: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/chop-car-seat-safety-check-king-of-prussia-specialty-care-center-july-23-registration-25870347907)
