Elliot Whittier Insurance is pleased to announce our 7th Annual Free Infant & Child Car Seat event for the general public!
The event will be held on Saturday, September 15th from 10:00 AM until 12:00 Noon at Elliot Whittier Insurance, 12 Revere Street, Winthrop, MA.
UPDATE: We will be raffling off (2) Red Sox tickets with assigned parking, thanks to our sponsor Safety Insurance! One raffle chance per car, must have car seat inspected. (No Drive By's)
According to the National Traffic Safety Administration, car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 - 13.
The correct car seat, correctly installed, will help to keep your child safe in the event of a crash.
According to Event Organizer Christine O'Keefe, Business Development Manager at Elliot Whittier Insurance, "Doing what we can to keep our children safe is something we can all take part in being responsible for, and that is why here at Elliot Whittier Insurance we offer this community service. I would say that if we inspect 10 cars, 7 or 8 of the car seats will not be properly installed."
What happens during an Infant & Child Car Seat Event?
Certified Child Car Seat Inspectors will inspect your installed car seat and make sure that it is installed correctly. If it is not, they will re-install it properly.
Is there a cost to have your car seat inspected or re-installed?
There is no cost whatsoever. Elliot Whittier Insurance does this as a service to the community with help from the Winthrop Police Department, volunteers at-large, The East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, and Safety Insurance.
How long does it take to have your car seat inspected?
The actual inspection may take approximately 5 - 15 minutes. There may be a wait time if there are people in line ahead of you.
Do I have to make a reservation?
It is highly recommended that you make a reservation by calling Christine Millerick O'Keefe at 857-816-4935.
