Wayne County Community College District Presents Second Annual Child Car Seat Check Program
Date:3/18/2009

Event held in partnership with Children's Hospital of Michigan will teach parents and caregivers how to secure children for vehicle travel

Proper use of booster seats and car restraints is crucial for protecting children while on the road

DETROIT, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents and caregivers can learn how to properly and safely secure their children for vehicle travel during the Second Annual Child Car Seat Program, hosted by Wayne County Community College District's (WCCCD) Continuing Education Division, in partnership with Children's Hospital of Michigan.

The workshop will be held Saturday, March 21, 2009, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at WCCCD's Michigan Institute for Public Safety Education (MIPSE) Center, located at WCCCD's Downriver Campus, 21000 Northline Road in Taylor. The event is open to the public at no charge.

This program will educate parents and caregivers on the proper way to install a child car safety seat or child car restraint system. WCCCD and Children's Hospital also will offer replacement car seats for parents and caregivers of children for a minimal fee.

Backless booster seats can be bought for $8, high back booster seats for $15 and combination/convertible car seats for $20. Children must be present to receive the seating and supplies are limited.

Children up to the age of 8, and less than 4 feet 9 inches, must be in a child restraint system at all times while riding in a moving vehicle. Proper child restraints include car seats with harness straps or booster seats used with a vehicle's lap and shoulder belt.

Properly securing children in a car can be a matter of life and death. Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of accidental deaths among kids older than 1 year of age.

A study appearing in the February 2009 issue of the American Journal of Public Health reports that securing small children and infants in the proper child car safety seats could save their lives. According to the study's authors, use of child safety restraints dramatically lowers the chances that a child, three years of age or younger, will die in a serious traffic accident. The study also found that the odds of a baby dying in an auto crash dropped by 75 percent with use of a child safety seat, while the mortality rate for older children dropped by 60 percent.

WCCCD is committed to the continued development of new programs, hosting more community-based training sessions, improving student facilities and services, upgrading technologies, making capital investments in massive building expansion projects, training staff members to enhance their skills to maximize efficiency.
