Griffin, Safe Kids Host Free Child Passenger Safety Clinic Sept. 19

By Christian Meagher on 9/10/2021

As part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, Griffin Health and Safe Kids Greater Naugatuck Valley will offer a free child passenger safety clinic on Sun., Sept. 19 from noon-3 p.m. by appointment only.

The clinic will help parents, caregivers and children learn the importance of child car seats, how to properly install them and the appropriate positioning of a child in car seats or booster seats. Families in need may qualify for a free seat.

Child Passenger Safety Week raises awareness about the risks of improperly installed car seats and what seat a child should have according to their age, height and weight. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, every 32 seconds, a child under the age of 13 in a passenger vehicle is involved in a crash. Many times, injuries and deaths can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts. For more information, visit NHTSA.gov/TheRightSeat.

To make an appointment for the clinic or for more information, contact Cathi Kellett at 203-732-1337 or ckellett@griffinhealth.org.
