EMS to mark Child Passenger Safety Week
Winchester Fire/EMS will mark Child Passenger Safety Week by reminding children of the importance of buckling up in the car.
According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration research, 8,325 lives of children under age 5 have been saved by the proper use of child restraints during the past 30 years.
On Monday, Winchester Fire/EMS will kick off the week with Bucklebear, a teddy bear that was developed by Dr. Albert Chang and his team at the UCLA School of Public Heath. They will be traveling to the public and private schools to educate children and caregivers about child passenger safety throughout the week.
