Date: June 1, 2012
Time: 12:00 to 8:00 pm
Location: Canadian Tire (Kirkland) 16821 Trans-Canada Highway
In Quebec each year over 1000 kids are seriously injured or die on the road. Most of these injuries are preventable! When a car seat is properly installed it can reduce the risk of injury by up to 70%
Are you sure that your children are secure in their car seats or booster seats? According to the Société d’assurance automobile du Québec, 2 out of 3 children are not safe while riding in a car.
On June 1, 2012 MCH Trauma is partnering with the SPVM, SAAQ and the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Foundation in order to run a free car seat verification clinic. MCH Trauma specialists will be on hand to provide educational resources and consultations on car seat use as well as a large assortment of trauma and injury prevention topics. The SPVM will be verifying the car seats.
Come join us for an informative and fun filled day and have your child’s car seat verified.
