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.

The Elliot Whittier Insurance Bi-Annual Community Event attracted plenty of parents, caregivers, and grandparents!
On Saturday, May 21st, Elliot Whittier Insurance held a FREE Infant & Child Car Seat Inspection event for the communtiy. Attendees drove into the parking lot and had their car seat inspected and reinstalled as needed by certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians.
According to Steve Roy, CEO of Elliot Whittier Insurance, " We could not have been able to provide this service to the community without the help of Stephanie Long, Winthrop Police Officers Judy Racow and Rob Carter, and also our sponsors The Winthrop Police Department & The East Boston Neighborhood Health Center. We would also like to thank Safety Insurance, The Winthrop Marketplace and Nick's Place and last but not least Christine Millerick O'Keefe who conceived of, and coordinated, this event since it's inception in 2009."
