Penn State Health Children’s Hospital, The GIANT Company team up to launch community car seat safety program
Penn State Health Children’s Hospital and The GIANT Company are holding car seat safety check points in July. The events are part of an effort by the Children’s Hospital and GIANT to make safety sessions more accessible to families in the region.
The program’s goal is to ease the financial burden for families in need of a car seat and provide safety education. Every 32 seconds in 2018, one child under the age of 13 traveling in a passenger vehicle was involved in a crash, and many times, injury and death can be prevented by correct use of car seats, booster seats and seat belts. However, 59 percent of car seats are not installed correctly according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
