The 2018 Annual Infant & Child Car Seat Inspection Day was a success!
Here at Elliot Whittier Insurance, we have just finished up our latest Free Infant & Child Car Seat Inspection Event for the general public. Every year, members from the community may drive into our parking lot at our Winthrop location, and have their car seat checked by certified inspectors to make sure that it is installed correctly. This year's event was held this past Saturday, September 15th.
Pictured from left to right are Stephanie Long, community member, Nicole Griffin, of Elliot Whittier Insurance, Bob Carter and Judy Racow, from the Winthrop Police Department, and Steve Roy and Christine O'Keefe, from Elliot Whittier Insurance.
"Taking part in helping to keep our children safe is something we at Elliot Whittier Insurance truly care about. Statistics tell us that 8 out of 10 car seats are not installed correctly, and that this leads to more injuries. Providing this service to the community is an honor," said Steve Roy CEO of Elliot Whittier.
This year, we found that every single car seat needed to be adjusted," according to event organizer, Christine O'Keefe. "All sorts of people will come to this event. We had a grandmother who comes every year, a couple and their son who had recently moved into town, and even one couple expecting their very first baby, all wanting to make sure that their car seat was installed correctly. People were very happy to have peace of mind once their had their car seat checked."
We were also excited to have a free raffle prize of Red Sox Tickets with assigned parking, courtesy of our friends at Safety Insurance. The lucky winners were Laura & Dan Murrin, shown on the right below!
