Injury Prevention - Car Seat Training

As of January 1, 2007, kids in cars have to be buckled into a booster seat until they turn nine, unless they are more than 145 cm (4'9" tall). Car crashes kill and injure more children than any other cause. When the right car seat is used the right way, you can reduce the risk that your child will be hurt by 70%, and you can reduce the risk of death by 90%.

Trained Child Restraint Systems Technicians are available in many communities to check the installation of your child's seat. Call Child Safety Link 1-866-288-1388 to get the contact information for a technician near you.
