It's On!  Our 8th Annual Infant & Child Car Seat Inspection Event 2019

Elliot Whittier Insurance is excited to announce our 8th Annual Free Infant & Child Car Seat Inspection event for the general public!

The event will be held on Saturday, September 7th from 10:00 AM until 12:00 Noon at Elliot Whittier Insurance, 12 Revere Street in Winthrop MA.  We are located directly across from The Winthrop Marketplace.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every 32 seconds in 2017, one child under the age of 13 in a passenger vehicle was involved in a crash.  Many times, injuries and deaths can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts. 

Elliot Whittier Car Seat Inspection Testimonial from an actual attendee after they experienced an accident with their child in the car

"Doing what we can to help to keep our children safe is something we can all take a small 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 car seats, 7 or 8 of them will not be properly installed and will need our inspectors to re-install them.  That said, a huge thank you to Officers Racow  & Carter, and to Stephanie Long, who are certified to perform this service" said Christine O'Keefe, Business Development Manager at Elliot Whittier Insurance.
