40 Force: Safety Check


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Your child is your most precious cargo, but is your car seat properly installed?

The 40 Force was here to help.

Throughout the afternoon, families came down to our Liberty Street studios to have car and booster seats inspected to ensure they were installed safely.

Also, for those who had an uninstalled car seat but couldn’t figure out how to install it, our experts were here to help.

In total, 50 cars were checked throughout the day – and thanks to those who came out to our event!

Then, starting at 5:00 p.m., we discussed some common car seat mistakes, and other child safety issues.

We would like to thank the following groups and organizations for joining us today:

Safe Kids of Western Mass.
NHTSA Car Seat Recalls
Selecting a Car Seat
Car Seat Progression Chart
Installing a Car Seat
Finding Child Passenger Safety Techs and Check-Up Events
