Child Safety Seat Installation

September 21st, 2012 at 11:44 am by under Community, WTNH Blogs


Some of you may have heard our NEWS story on Wednesday about how often child safety seats are installed incorrectly.  Public safety personal must be certified for safety seat installation in CT so if you are having trouble finding someone to help please see below.

The Guilford Police department holds regular child seat installations, free of charge on the 1st Wednesday of the month from 7:30am-9:30am and the 3rd Sunday of the month from 3:30pm-5:30pm.  This is not only for Guilford residents and they only ask that people please call beforehand at 203.453.8061.

Their safety efforts are made possible by the Kelley Mason family who after loosing their daughter in a fatal car accident have committed to community outreach for driving safety in her memory.  Rose Mason, Kelley’s mother, hopes their family’s efforts can help other parents avoid the tragedy of  loosing a child.

On this Sunday, September the 23rd from 11-3pm they will be holding a brunch at Anthony’s Ocean View.  100% of the proceeds from the $30 admission charge and a silent auction will go toward child safety seats being donated to the Guilford Police Department.

      New car seats are the way to go… knowing the history of the seat is VERY IMPORTANT….( has the seat been in a crash,lables missing has it expired) the best seat out their is one that meets your childs needs and that you as a parent/caregiver can install correctly every time.. but also you must harness them correctly also.. As for children who unbuckle, maybe the reward system should come into play. every week set a goal for your child/children and reward him/her at the end of the week, with a fav. snack,extra 10 mins of play time before bed ect. Just some ideas.
