Hasbro techs inspect car seats

Posted 9/27/13

PROVIDENCE – To help combat preventable injuries due to improperly installed car seats, certified child passenger safety technicians from the Injury Prevention Center at Hasbro Children’s Hospital and other agencies inspected 85 car seats in the Roger Williams Park Zoo parking lot on Sept. 21.

Safety technicians also educated parents and caregivers on how to properly install car and booster seats in their cars.

The free event, sponsored by the Kohl’s Cares – Kids on the Go program, was part of National Seat Check Saturday.

A properly installed child safety seat lowers the risk of fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers in passenger cars.

During the event, representatives of Kohl’s presented a check for $138,800 to Hasbro Children’s Hospital to support continuation of the car seat check program for the next year. Kohl’s commitment is made possible through the Kohl’s Cares – Kids on the Go Program, which raises funds for children’s health and educational opportunities.

Since 2006, Kohl’s has raised more than $1 million for Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
