RENO — Each year, Child Passenger Safety Week (CPS) is celebrated across the country to remind parents and caregivers of the need to keep children of all ages properly restrained in the seat that meets their weight and height requirements. Child Passenger Safety Technicians will be present at Babies ‘R Us, 4869 Kietzke Lane, Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. to ensure that families are using the right restraint whether it is a car seat, booster seat or seat belt.

Unfortunately, car crashes remain the leading cause of death for children ages 3-14, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In efforts to reduce this, Safe Kids USA’s multifaceted child passenger safety program — Safe Kids Buckle Up (SKBU) — has been working diligently for the last 14 years.

This year is particularly significant because Safe Kids USA spent the course of a year collecting research data from 79,000 child safety seat inspections.

On Saturday come out to Babies ‘R Us for a safety seat checkup. It is a great time for you and your family to make sure that your child safety seat is installed correctly and to learn when it is time to from one seat to another based on your child’s age, weight and height. Inspection is limited to 30 vehicles, so early arrival is recommended.
