Boynton Beach firefighters to properly install child car seats

CAR CRASHES ARE A LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR CHILDREN AGES 1 TO 13. 46% OF CAR SEATS AND BOOSTER SEATS ARE ACTUALLY USED INCORRECTLY INSTALLED IMPROPERLY, WE SHOULD SAY. THIS WEEK IS CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK. AND HERE TO TALK MORE ABOUT THOSE CAR SEAT INSTALLATION IS BOYNTON BEACH FIRE RESCUE CAPTAIN JOE SENSEMAN. THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE WITH US. OF COURSE, THIS MORNING. SO INSTALLATION WITH EVERY CAR SEAT CAN BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT, BUT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HAS A PROGRAM JUST TO CHECK THOSE INSTALLATIONS FOR PEOPLE. WELL, SOMETIMES PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS GET INTIMIDATED BY PUTTING A CAR SEAT IN. AND THE TECHNOLOGY CHANGES CONSTANTLY. SO WITH THE CAR MANUFACTURERS, THE CAR SEATS, THE RECOMMENDATIONS THERE ARE ALWAYS CHANGING. AND WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH A 40 HOUR COURSE TO JUST TRY TO KEEP UP WITH IT. AND THEN WE CONTINUE OUR EDUCATION ALONG THE WAY BECAUSE WE FACE DIFFERENT KINDS OF CHALLENGES EVERY TIME THEY BRING CAR SEATS IN. I’VE SEEN NEW TECHNOLOGY WITH BLUETOOTH IN THE CHEST STRAPS. I’VE SEEN NEW LEGS OUT AND THINGS THAT I WASN’T AWARE OF WHEN I FIRST STARTED THE PROGRAM MYSELF. SO WE HAVE TO KEEP UP ON IT AND NEEDLESS TO SAY, PARENTS ARE VERY ANXIOUS ABOUT THAT. WE WANT TO PROTECT OUR LITTLE ONES OUT THERE. AND THEY THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY’RE DOING EVERYTHING RIGHT. WE HAVE GRANDPARENTS THAT HAVE PEOPLE COMING DOWN FROM UP NORTH AND THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY’RE GRANDCHILD WILL BE SAFE IN THEIR VEHICLE. SO WE OFFER A PROGRAM FOR YOU TO COME IN, GET YOUR CAR SEAT CHECKED OR GET AN INSTALLED. WE’LL INSTALL IT FOR YOU. WE’LL HELP YOU REGISTER FOR THE CAR SEAT. MAKE SURE IT’S IN DATE AND IT’S NOT HAVING A RECALL OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. AND GIVE YOU SOME POINTERS ON IT. SO LET’S TALK ABOUT THAT BECAUSE BOYNTON BEACH FIRE RESCUE HAS A PROGRAM WHERE A FEW TIMES A MONTH PEOPLE CAN CAN COME BY. WE DO. AND LEARN ABOUT IT. AND ALSO SO YOU GUYS CAN MAKE SURE THAT THE CAR SEATS ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY. THAT’S TRUE. SO 3 TO 4 TIMES A MONTH, WE OFFER A PLACE ON 1919 SOUTH FEDERAL STATION FOR WHERE OUR MOTHERS AND FAMILY MEMBERS CAN BRING IN THEIR CARS AND JUST MAKE SURE THAT THEIR INSTALLED THEIR SEATS CORRECTLY. AND MAYBE THEY MAYBE THEY DID IT. MAYBE THEY DID IT PERFECT. AND WE JUST ARE BLESSED TO HAVE SOMEONE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR WORK, RIGHT? YEAH. SO YOU CAN SEE ON THE SCREEN THERE THE DATES ARE LISTED. SO THE NEXT ONE COMING UP HERE IS ON SEPTEMBER 25TH. AND I DID WANT TO ASK YOU SOMETHING, BECAUSE THIS IS SOMETHING I RECENTLY LEARNED A FEW WEEKS AWAY FROM FROM HAVING OUR BABY HERE, THAT CAR SEATS EXPIRE. AND WHY IS THAT SO? TECHNOLOGY CHANGES. RULES AND REGULATIONS CHANGE. MAGE HEAT AND COLD CAN HAVE AN EFFECT ON THE CAR SEATS. THE CAR SEATS ARE LEFT OUT IN THE CAR IN THE GARAGE FOR YEARS. WE DON’T DON’T KNOW IF THEY’VE BEEN INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT PERHAPS, OR WE DON’T NECESSARILY WANT CAR SEATS BEING SOLD AT GARAGE SALES AND THINGS LIKE THAT. AND YOU’RE NOT KNOWING THE HISTORY OF IT. SO THEY DO HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE. AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE TOP OF THE LINE. AND FOR OUR LITTLE PASSENGERS, ALL RIGHT. I’M IN SOUTHERN PALM BEACH COUNTY, SO I MAY BE COMING BY YOUR YOUR STATION. PLEASE DO. AND AND MAKING SURE THAT WE’RE DOING EVERYTHING THE WAY WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING IT. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ADD THAT WE DIDN’T TOUCH UPON, THAT WE SHOULD LET PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS KNOW? I JUST YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS WE HAVE IS LIKE WHERE THE RIGHT PLACEMENT IS OF THE CAR SEAT OR WHEN CAN MY CHILD FACE FORWARD AND IT REALLY IS NOT A ONE SIZE ALL YOUR QUESTION TO ANSWER WHEN THEY FIRST TALKED ABOUT DOING THIS SEGMENT, THEY WERE THINKING ABOUT BRINGING IN A CAR SEAT AND A BABY AND HAVING ME INSTALL IT. BUT IT’S EVERY PERSON’S SITUATION IS DIFFERENT FROM THEIR SIZE OF THEIR CHILD, THEIR CAR MANUFACTURER. THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE CAR SEAT AND MAYBE EVEN THE MATURITY LEVEL OF THEIR CHILDREN. SO ALL THOSE THINGS COME INTO PLAY AND WE WANT TO ANSWER IT AND SPEND SOME PERSONAL TIME WITH EACH INDIVIDUAL. YEAH, I RECENTLY LEARNED TOO, THAT THE THE STRAPS ALSO YOU HAVE TO ADJUST IT IN THE BACK DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF YOUR CHILD AND ALL THAT. SO LIKE I SAID, I’LL BE PAYING YOU GUYS A VISIT JUST TO BE SURE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY AND SHARING THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION.
