According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for young children, but many of these deaths can be prevented if children ride in a properly fastened and secured car seat.
On Friday, March 14, 2014, from 1-4 pm, Evangelical Community Health and Wellness will be holding a child safety seat event at the Evangelical Community Health and Wellness Center, located on Route 15 next to the Hospital.

Participants are asked to bring their vehicle, the owner’s manual for the vehicle, and the instruction manual for the safety seat they are using.
