One of the things I recommend every parent get done as often as possible is a checkup on your car seats.Â Protecting children while in your car is so important.
The staff from the Birth Place in Women’s and Children’s Services of Southwestern Vermont Medical Center are offering to fit your car seat on December 18 at the Bennington Rescue Squad station.Â The Rescue Squad station is located at 120 McKinley Street in Bennington, for those of you new to the area.
These fittings take place on the third Monday of each month, between 4 and 8pm, by appointment.Â Please callÂ Women’s and Children’s Services at 447-5160 to make an appointment.
Every year, approximately 1,800 children ages 14 and under are killed in motor vehicle accidents, and 280,000 are injured.Â Correct use of restraints can minimize, and even prevent, injury or death.
Vermont law requires that children up to 80 pounds and up to 8 years of age be restrained in a car safety seat or booster seat.
