In Colorado 98% of child car seats are installed incorrectly. This means that children traveling in every community across Colorado are at risk for serious injuries or death because they are improperly restrained or not restrained at all.
Eagle County Ambulance District has become a Child Passenger Safety Inspection Station where parents and caregivers can go to have their child’s safety seat checked.
The responsibility for proper installation of child safety seats is placed with the parents and other adult caregivers. However, the wide variety of child restraint systems, belt systems and passenger vehicles can make the correct installation of a child restraint system a challenge.
We offer a one-on-one tutorial instruction by nationally certified CPS technicians on the proper use and installation of child restraints. Education about the correct use of child safety seats is a proven safety intervention.
Inspections are held the first Tuesday of each month from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at our Edwards Station, located behind the Post Office in Edwards. Call 970-926-5270 for more information.
