I didn’t know it but my son’s car seat wasn’t installed correctly.
Thankfully I found out before it was too late. Who’s to blame? My tired mama brain, of course.
Car seat safety is probably one of the most important things when travelling with a child in your car but sadly many of us don’t know how to properly install and remove car seats. And not only that but how do we know when it is time to transition to a bigger seat?
We are tired mamas and we need reminders, often. That is why I am letting you know about a program that launched recently in three cities across Canada.
Learn about proper car seat installation
Chevrolet just launched in Canada called Chevrolet Safe and Sure Car Seat Installation Workshop program. Parents and caregivers can sign up for a free one-on-one workshop with a certified car seat technician at Chevrolet dealerships in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal to learn about the proper way to install their child’s car seat, and safety tips such as car seat expiry dates and sizing.
Even if you don’t have children in car seats, you may know someone who has car seat aged children that would benefit from this program. It’s something your readers would definitely be interested in knowing about!
The great thing about this program is that you don’t have to drive a Chevrolet vehicle to participate. Any brand/model vehicle can sign-up for a Chevrolet Safe and Sure workshop. So yes, even if someone drives a Honda Odyssey Minivan or a Toyota Camry – this program is still open to them!
Check out the video
Here’s the Chevrolet Safe and Sure video which highlights what parents and caregivers can expect when visiting a Chevrolet Safe and Sure workshop. For more information about the program and where to register, please visit www.safeandsure.ca
