Car Seat Safety

Covenant Children's Hospital wants to help you in the process of making sure your car seat is safe and secure for your little ones. We offer a Road Rules class, which covers carseat safety for your infants and children.

When you take Covenant's Road Rules class, instructor Karen Slay gives you the opportunity to to make an appointment to make sure your car seat has been installed correctly.

If you are interested in taking our Road Rules class, call our Women's Services Coordinator at 725-6667 and we will help you get enrolled.

Fighting the Statistics

In most cases the answer to a safer automobile experience is nothing more than buckling up. For small children, that means being buckled into a carseat. More than 60 % of the children aged 0-5 years old who are killed in car crashes were not in safety seat. Child restraint systems are 71% effective in reducing deaths for infants in passenger cars, and 54% effective in reducing toddler deaths.

Frequently Asked Questions

The following are examples of the type questions you will get the answets to at Covenant's Road Rules Safety Class:

What kind of car seat should I purchase?

What are the basic guidelines for proper safety seat use?

How old is too old for a safety seat?

How long should my baby be in a rear facing carseat?

Should I use the LATCH system or a safety belt?
