CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY

Did you know that according to Safe Kids Worldwide, road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the United States? Another fact is that more than half of car seats are not used or installed correctly. We now have personnel at our fire district that are nationally certified as Child Passenger Safety Technicians to further help keep our community safe. This training certifies that our technicians can help ensure our most precious cargo are properly restrained and to educate caregivers on the proper use and installation of child restraints. We encourage you to have your car seat checked and the great news is that it is absolutely FREE. Please visit our Child Passenger Safety page to sign up or for more information. You may also reach out to set up an appointment with a technician via phone at 985.256.4705 or email us at contact@pearlriverfire.org. Don't worry if you live outside of the Pearl River area, we can help you find your nearest technician. Please like and follow Buckle Up Louisiana for the latest information.
