Kewanee Police Offering Assistance with Child Car Seat Installation on June 4th

SHARE NOW

Last week, Telecommunicator BreAnne Bryner and Sergeant Andrew Kingdon attended classes to obtain National Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST) certifications. BreAnne Bryner and Sergeant Kingdon are certified to educate people with the installation of rear-facing car seats, forward-facing car seats, and booster seats based on manufacturer and vehicle requirements. A CPST inspection of child car seats significantly reduces crash-related injuries and fatalities for children. Approximately 74% of all car seats are installed or used incorrectly. If you are expecting a baby, upgrading to a new car seat, purchasing a new vehicle, installing a car seat to babysit, unsure of height or weight requirements, or want to feel secure in the installation of a car seat or check for recalls, the Kewanee Police Department can help.

This service is FREE to the community, without judgment, and can be used by emailing [email protected] to make an appointment. Appointments are available on Tuesday, June 4, 2024, from 1 to 8 PM. The Kewanee Police Department will post days with known available times. They will also host community events in the future.

Rosa Rushing with Braveheart Children’s Advocacy Center attended the training as well and can offer services for anyone in Henry, Stark, Bureau, Marshall & Putnam counties.  Rosa also offers bilingual services by appointment at [email protected].
