Free Resources for Parents to Ensure Children’s Safety Thousands of parents and caregivers travel each day in DeKalb County with children in their vehicles. While some children are buckled-in properly in the correct car seats for their ages and sizes – most are not, if they are buckled up at all. To help combat this issue, the Live Healthy DeKalb Coalition and DeKalb County Board of Health are participating in National Child Passenger Safety Week, September 23-29, 2018, a campaign dedicated to helping parents and caregivers make sure their children ride as safely as possible – every trip, every time. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 46 percent of car seats are misused. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading killer of children, and fatalities are on the rise. Car seats, booster seats, and seat belts can make all the difference. The Live Healthy DeKalb Coalition and the Board of Health will host the Fall Family Safety Event this Friday, September 28th from 10:00am – 2:00p.m. at the Richardson Health Center located at 445 Winn Way. Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will check infant and booster seats for correct installations as well as provide free seats for qualified participants. “Using car seats that are age- and weight/height-appropriate is the best way to keep your children safe.” states Rosalind Hill, MPH., Health Prevention and Promotion Program Coordinator for the DeKalb County Board of Health. In addition to car seat safety checks, the event will feature a “hot-car” demonstration to highlight the dangers of leaving a child alone in a vehicle. Giveaways will be provided for the entire family as well as pedestrian and bike safety tips. “It’s our job to keep our children safe,” said Ms. Hill. “Get your car seats checked. Make certain they’re installed correctly, and that your kids are in the right seats and are buckled in correctly. Even if you think your child’s car seat is installed correctly, get it checked with one of our Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians, so you can be sure that your child is the safest he or she can be while traveling.” For more information on family fall safety, call the DeKalb County Board of Health Injury Prevention Program at (404) 508-7985 or email DeKalb.HPP@dph.ga.gov
