The California Highway Patrol Woodland Area office, the Winters Police Department, Winters Fire Department and Yolo County Health and Human Services are partnering to host a car seat event. The event will be held at the Winters Fire Department at 700 Main St. on Thursday, Aug. 1, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Certified Child Passenger Safety Seat Technicians will be on site to answer questions or teach you how to properly install your child safety seat.
Make sure children are properly restrained in a child safety seat until the age of eight, or they are at least 4’9” tall. Children under two years of age must remain in a rear facing child safety seat unless they are 40 pounds or 40 inches. Not only is it the law but it’s much safer.
An unrestrained child in a car is at significant risk of injury or death in the event of a traffic collision. Protect children by using age appropriate passenger restraint devices. A child’s life depends on that car seat, that’s why it is important to make sure it is properly installed.
For additional information call the California Highway Patrol Woodland Area office at 530-662-4685.
This program is supported by a grant awarded by the California Office of Traffic Safety Administration through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.]]>
