Car crashes are the #1 cause of death in children 1- 13 years old.
Many deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats,
boosters and seat belts.
“As children grow, car seats need to be refitted, adjusted or replaced, depending on their needs,”
says certified installer Sarah Lee Marks, “Our team of volunteers from CCSD School Police,
NHP Command Center, SafeKids Clark County and Car Seats for Christy
are all dedicated to saving lives, one car seat at a time.”
Las Vegas National Seat Check Saturday Event at Findlay VW North Las Vegas
While there is a lot of information available online, trying to understand the often complex diagrams
and instructions from the vehicle owner’s manual to the car seat manufacturer’s instructions can be confusing.
The certified installers will be checking to be sure all car seats are properly fit and secured.
Attendees can drive to the dealership without an appointment, enjoy some refreshment,
and learn handy tips and techniques to getting that seat secured properly,
in the safest position for your child, in your vehicle.
“We will check for recalls, expiration dates, and worn parts,
while providing hands-on education to everyone responsible for
the safe transport of children on our roadways,” Marks continued.
Take a Test Drive for Car Seats for Christy…
Mr. Doug Fleming, Findlay Volkswagen North General Manager announced
additional donations for local charity; Car Seats for Christy,
“We invite everyone in the area to stop by and take a test drive in one of our new,
certified or pre-owned vehicles during the event. Once you complete the behind the wheel vehicle evaluation
Findlay VW North will make a donation to Car Seats for Christy on your behalf.”
Car Seats for Christy was started by co-workers and friends of Southwest Gas employee Christy Barnhart Hebert,
a single mother of two who lost her life in a January 2004 car crash. Her daughters’ lives were spared
thanks to the car seat restraints Christy was so committed to maintaining. As a living tribute to Christy,
her friends continue to promote the message of car seat education and provide restraints to those in need.
Test-drive donations will allow this work to continue. The Car Seats for Christy Foundation, is an 501(c)3 organization.
