Car Seat Safety Day

Many caregivers have had training in the appropriate way to install a car seat or a booster seat, while others try to follow the instructions on the box, and others remain unclear on these issues. Even with current legislation related to car seats, more than 1,000 infants and toddlers die and another 40,000 are seriously injured each year because they are not properly restrained, according to National Safety Council data. Shockingly, Tennessee's fatality rate is 50 percent higher than the national average. 

Let the experts check the car seats in your vehicle and learn how to avoid common mistakes. Healthstar Physicians Premier Medical is hosting a child safety day on Saturday, September 18th from 10 AM to 2 PM at their facility located at 121 Newport Towne Center. This is a FREE event where certified child passenger safety technicians will check the installation of your seat(s) and teach you proper installation techniques.
