Car Seat Safety Program 

The Car Seat Safety Program was launched in March of 2016. In the first year of implementation the local car seat misuse rate was 98%. This means that nearly every car seat that shows up to an event is installed incorrectly. The Car Seat Safety Program's goal is to reduce the number of child injuries, child trauma and injury-related deaths. The mission is to change the culture of car restraint usage - both car seats and seat belts - and to help establish lifelong safety habits across all age groups.
