Safe Kids Clark County is a non-profit organization and is a part of Safe Kids Worldwide. During the month of July, they will be hosting 3 safety events at local hospitals. Bring your vehicle and car seat for a “safety checkup.” It’s absolutely free, but donations are accepted. As a midwife who sees many babies, both newborn and children I had the pleasure of being a part of their birth experience – I urge parents and caregivers to take a moment to ensure the car seat is setup safely.
In addition, Safe Kids Clark County reviews many safety tips, such as:
- Heat and kids in cars
- Drowning prevention tips
- Fire prevention
- TV & Furniture tip over information
