Child Passenger Safety Program

Free Education Clinics

Sept. 18 - 1:00 - 3:00 pm
Sept. 19 - 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Station #2 2499 Dorman Road Nanaimo

Car crashes are the leading cause of accidental death among children in British Columbia. Each year in BC over 1,300 children under the age of nine, which is equivalent to five elementary schools, are injured or killed in motor vehicle collisions.

The proper use of car safety seats can greatly increase the chances of preventing injuries and surviving a motor vehicle collision. It is estimated that this number can be reduced by up to 85% by having a correctly installed child passenger seat.

Nanaimo Fire Rescue will be hosting two free Child Passenger Seat education clinics this week on Sept. 18th & 19th between the hours of 1:00 - 3:00 pm  at Fire Station #2 at 2499 Dorman Road.

Parents can have their child's passenger seat installation inspected for free by a trained, child passenger safety educator. Space is limited so you will have to call for an appointment, please call 250-753-7311 for more information or to book your appointment.
