Certified technicians help parents correctly use and install car and booster seats

Safe Kids Hudson County urges parents and caregivers to make sure their car seats and booster seats are properly installed on September 26th. Jersey City Medical Center "Barnabas Health and the Jersey City Police department will have English- and Spanish-speaking certified child passenger safety technicians available to provide hands-on instruction on installing car and booster seats at the Target Store Parking Lot, 100 14th Street, Jersey City from 10a-2p. Correctly used child safety seats can reduce the risk of death by as much as 71 percent. We want all parents to make sure their car seats are used and installed correctly and that the whole family is buckled up every time on every ride. And we're here to help." Car seat inspections offer drivers the chance to receive assistance and guidance from certified car seat technicians regarding proper installation of their child safety and booster seats. Safe Kids Buckle Up events continue throughout the year.

Parents can also check their own car and booster seats by using this car seat check list. Certified child passenger safety technicians are available to help or double check your work. Parents and caregivers can locate an event in their community by visiting the Safe Kids website at safekids.org.
