Advice: Making sure child safety seat properly installed

THE CROWN IS YOURS. SEPTEMBER 17TH THROUGH THE 23RD IS CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK. IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE CAR CRASHES ARE ONE OF THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR CHILDREN. WE ARE JOINED LIVE NOW BY VINNIE CURRO OF LONDONDERRY FIRE RESCUE. VINNIE, IT’S GREAT TO SEE YOU. YOU’RE ALSO THE COORDINATOR FOR FOR THE LONDONDERRY CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY PROGRAM. THIS IS VITALLY IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE KIDS SAFE IN THE CARS. SO WHAT ARE THE TOP COUPLE OF THINGS THAT YOU TELL PARENTS WHEN THEY COME IN ASKING, WHAT DO I DO WITH THE CAR SEAT? HOW DO I INSTALL IT? WHAT ONE DO I BUY? WELL, GOOD AFTERNOON. THANKS FOR HAVING ME. AND YES, IT IS CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK. SOME OF THE IMPORTANT ITEMS THAT WE LOOK FOR IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE CHILD STAYS REAR FACING AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS RECOMMENDS AT LEAST UNTIL TWO, BUT AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. SOME OF THE NEWER CONVERTED SEATS THAT ARE ON THE MARKET WILL GO TO 50 POUNDS RIGHT NOW. SO THE CHILD COULD BE 3 OR 4 YEARS OLD AND STILL REAR FACING. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE CHILD IS IN THE PROPER LOCATION, IN THE VEHICLE. SO AS YOU SAW IN THE VIDEO RIGHT THERE, THEY’RE PUTTING IT INTO THE CENTER OF THE REAR POSITION. THAT’S THE SAFEST IN THE CAR. WHENEVER WE CAN DO IT SAFELY AND IN THE CAREGIVER DOES NOT HAVE ANY ISSUES WITH THE INSTALLATION. AND VINNIE, THIS COULD BE NERVE WRACKING, ESPECIALLY FOR NEW PARENTS. SO TOMORROW IS NATIONAL SEAT CHECK SATURDAY. I KNOW YOU GUYS GOT AN EVENT GOING ON. WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT? SO, YES, IN LONDONDERRY, WE’RE DOING AN EVENT FOR, AS YOU SAID, CHECK SATURDAY. IT’S A NATIONWIDE TIME THAT FITTING STATIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WILL GET TOGETHER AND WE DO THEM RIGHT EARLY. YOU KNOW, AND THERE’S 63 FITTING STATIONS IN THE STATE RIGHT NOW. AND TOMORROW WE’LL GET TOGETHER, AS YOU CAN SEE AT SOUTH FIRE STATION, 10 A.M. TO 1 P.M., TRAIN TECHNICIANS, THEY’RE ALL CERTIFIED NATIONALLY CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS. WE HAVE A NATIONAL FORM THAT WE USE TO CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT WE LOOK THROUGH EVERYTHING. WE’LL INSPECT THE VEHICLE IN THE SEAT AS IT’S INSTALLED, AS THE PARENT OR CAREGIVER ARRIVE. WE’LL DISCUSS HOW WE COULD POSSIBLY MAKE THAT CHILD SAFE OR THE INSTALLATION SAFER WITH THE PARENT OR THE CAREGIVER. AND THEN THROUGH, YOU KNOW, OUR LITTLE TALKS THAT WE HAVE, WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT THE CHILD LEAVES SAFER. OUR GOAL IS THAT THE CHILD LEAVES SAFER WHEN THEY LEAVE THAN WHEN THEY BEFORE WHEN THEY ARRIVE. VINNIE, IT’S SUCH A GREAT SERVICE. I CAN TELL YOU. YOU HAVE A COUPLE OF FANS RIGHT HERE IN OUR STUDIO, BOTH METEOROLOGIST HAYLEY LAPOINT AND OUR 5:00 ANCHOR MONICA HERNANDEZ. WE’RE JUST SAYING THAT YOU HELPED THEM MAKE SURE THAT THEIR CAR SEATS WERE SAFE WHEN THEY WERE BRINGING THEIR BABIES HOME. SO, LOOK, ALL THESE LIVES YOU’RE TOUCHING AND ALL OF THESE FAMILIES, YOU’RE MAKING SURE STAY SAFE. EXACTLY. AND THAT’S THE WHOLE YOU KNOW, THE WHOLE REASON WHY TECHNICIANS IN THIS IN THE STATE AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY DO THIS IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY’RE SAFE. YOU KNOW, THAT THE CHILDREN DON’T KNOW. AND IT CAN BE CONFUSING SOMETIMES. AMES, YOU KNOW, DO WE GO REAR FACING? DO WE GO FORWARD FACING WHAT ARE WE USING A LAP AND A SHOULDER BELT OR ARE WE USING THE LAP SYSTEM? I’VE HAD THE PLEASURE OF? YES, INSTALLING SEVERAL SEATS FROM YOUR TEAM MEMBERS AND YOU KNOW, IT. AND IT’S AWESOME. IT’S GREAT THAT YOU KNOW, YOU GUYS CAN HELP US GET THE GET THE WORD OUT IF THEY CAN GO ON OUR WEBSITE, THE STATE WEBSITE, IT’S OUR, YOU KNOW, OUR ONLINE RESOURCE FOR JUST ABOUT ANYTHING THAT YOU NEED. THAT WEBSITE IS BE SEAT SMART AND DOT ORG. IT HAS A CALENDAR OF ALL OF THE FITTING STATIONS WHEN THEY DO THEIR EVENTS. COMING UP IN ADDITION TO OURS ON SATURDAY. SO TECHNICIANS ARE OUT THERE WILLING TO HELP AND MAKE SURE THAT THE PARENTS AND THE CAREGIVERS GRANDPARENTS AS WELL. ABOUT A THIRD OF THE INSPECTIONS WE DO NOW ARE THE GRANDPARENTS BECAUSE THEY’RE WATCHING THE KIDS LONGER. SO. OKAY, VINNY, CAIRO, A LONDONDERRY FIRE RESCUE AND AND CAR SEAT COORDINATOR. WE APPRECIATE ALL OF THE HELP THAT YOU’RE GIVING FAMILIES
