Child Passenger Safety Week: September 19-25, 2021! 

 

How will you participate?

Every year, Child Safety Link and our Atlantic Canadian partners celebrate Child Passenger Safety Week to highlight how we can better protect children in vehicles.  

 

This year’s theme is “The Right Seat for Every Child” with information intended to help families choose the right seat and use it safely. 

The information shared will highlight how to know that a child is in the appropriate seat for his or her age and stage and highlight common errors to watch out for. We want to bring awareness of the importance of using car seats and booster seats to families to prevent injuries.

As always, we will direct families to where they can find help through the support of community partners.  Together we can support families to choose the right seat and use it safely.

 

Remember that any activity promoting child passenger safety is welcome and celebrated this week and the whole month of September!

Sample message:
Is your child in #TheRightSeat?

When your baby outgrows the infant seat, use a larger, rear-facing seat.
A rear-facing seat provides the best protection for your child’s head, neck and spine in a sudden stop or crash.
Keep your child rear facing for as long as they still fit this seat.

Keep your child rear facing for as long as they still fit their larger, rear-facing seat.
Your child is safest riding rear facing until 2, 3 or even 4 years old.

Is your child in #TheRightSeat?

How your child’s seat belt should fit:
– Make sure the shoulder belt crosses the chest and stays between your child’s neck and shoulder.
– The lap belt should fit low and snug across your child’s hips.
– Your child’s knees should bend comfortably over the edge of the vehicle seat when sitting all the way back.

 
Most children are 10-12 years old before they can safely use the adult seat belt without a booster seat.
