On a windy Saturday in January, Safe Kids Central Wyoming held the first free car seat inspection at the new location – White’s Mountain Motors on East Yellowstone Highway. Moving the car seat inspections to White’s Mountain Motors is in alignment with our General Motors sponsor. General Motors has been a national sponsor for Safe Kids USA for over 16 years. The Buckle Up program has grown into the most comprehensive child passenger safety program in the nation. Measurement of the program is lives saved and injuries prevented. Since this program was started the number of deaths has been cut by a third, and the number of injuries have been cut in half today.
Even with the wind howling outside the service area, 10 vehicles showed up for the volunteer child passenger safety technicians to inspect 12 car seats to ensure they were installed correctly. Three car seats/booster seats were changed out to provide the correct equipment to the children that attended the event.
Safe Kids was very fortunate to have White’s Mountain Motors donate the removal of the old Safe Kids van graphics, along with purchasing and installing the new graphics. The graphics are the new Safe Kids Worldwide logos and decons.
