Safety 1st Community Fun Day With Car Seat Safety Checks This Friday 6/17

Safety 1st is hosting a Community Fun Day and Tour to Promote Child Passenger Safety Kicks Off at their Manufacturing Headquarters in Columbus, IN on June 17th.

Did you know 73% of car seats are not used or installed correctly? Yet correctly used child safety seats can reduce the risk of injury or death by 71% (Safe Kids). Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).

Safety 1st (a Dorel Juvenile brand) and Allstate Insurance Company are kicking off the “On the Road with Air Protect Tour” with an interactive and informative community event to help keep Indiana’s children safe.

Activities and photo opportunities include:
• Free inspections of any brand of child restraint by Safety 1st car seat technicians
• Photos with an 8 foot tall “oversized” car seat
• A firetruck for kids to climb aboard
• Demos of the latest Safety 1st car seats and information on why seats with Air Protect™ Technology are safer* (*Based on testing Safety 1st seats with and without air protect)
• Safety kits from Allstate will be distributed
• Treats from ice cream truck
• Chances to win giveaways
• Check presentation to Foundation for Youth

The companies are also encouraging parents to bring unwanted, expired or unsafe car seats to be properly recycled by Dorel’s manufacturing plant.

*The tour will make stops across the country from June until August.

Mention you heard about the event on the Mom in Training blog and receive a VIP Safety 1st swag bag! *Swag bags are limited so first come first serve.

Be sure to stop in and check out the Safety 1st Grow and Go EX Air car seat that will be featured at the event too. It's probably one of the best car seat's I've ever laid eyes on. I sure wish when my two were born this was around. It not only has all the bells and whistles you'd want in a car set, it also grows with your child so you don't have to buy a new one each time they outgrow their old seat. Probably the feature I personally love the most because they seem to grow so fast that first year.

Featuring Dorel Juvenile patented Air Protect® technology, the Safety 1st Grow and Go EX Air provides advanced safety systems for truly superior side impact crash protection. The successor of the widely popular Grow and Go Air, the Grow and Go EX Air provides the same features with a new extended rear-facing feature, including up to 50 pounds in the safer, rear-facing position.

Air Protect® Technology
Driven by emotional stories of traumatic crashes, Safety 1st’s world-class team of Child Passenger Safety Experts began researching, developing and testing Air Protect® technology in 2009. Utilizing the most advanced testing methods, at the Dorel Juvenile manufacturing and research and development facility in Columbus, IN, Air Protect® has been proven to save lives. Outside of testing facilities, this fact has been proven by parents through countless letters, calls and photos from families around the US.

Key Features:
• Offers extended use through three stages (Rear-facing from 5 to 50 pounds, Forward-facing from 22 to 65 pounds, and Belt-positioning booster from 40 to 100 pounds)
• Superior safety with Air Protect®, an advanced cushion system that provides extra protection
• A snap to clean! Machine washable and dryer safe seat pad, unsnaps and lifts away quickly from the seat frame for truly easy cleaning
• QuickFit™ Harness for easy adjustment of both harness and headrest in one simple step
• 3-position recline for a good fit in any car
• In and Out Harness Holders keep straps out of the way when buckling
• Easy belt access panels built into the seat for easy installation
• Grow-with-baby pillows for a comfortable ride
• A compact install, allowing up to 7” more legroom for adult, front seat passengers.
• Two integrated cup holders
