Because child safety seats and booster seats save lives when used correctly, it’s critical that parents and caregivers know the importance of securing all children in appropriate child safety seats, booster seats or seat belts.
We need your help to make the 2010 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Child Passenger Safety Week (September 19-25) and Seat Check Saturday (September 25) a success.
Follow these simple steps to spread the word to Washington’s fire, medical and media communities:
- Forward this message along to any of your Safety Committee, Community Outreach Group, as well as local, regional or state EMS and fire personnel to notify them of the upcoming Child Passenger Safety Week & Safety Check Saturday.
- Engage local media partners to highlight the PREVENTABLE nature of injuries sustained from incorrect safety seat use.
- Direct parents to the
NHTSA website where they can look for inspection stations in their area. Or if you are in Seattle, schedule a Safety Seat Check with Safety Norm 206-382-4090
- Download earned media and creative materials (English & Spanish) from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
campaign planner . Review your state’s child passenger safety law .
- Promote your support as medical and fire personnel by submitting editorial letters to your local newspapers about the national campaign.
We are grateful for your continued support of child passenger safety efforts, and we hope you will be active in the upcoming National Child Passenger Safety Week. Please talk to your friends, relatives & coworkers and write to your local newspapers about the campaign. With your participation, we can keep our children safe.
Thank you for your support!
