Union County Agencies and Organizations Team Up to Ensure Car Seat Safety

Car Seat Check on Sept. 24

The following information was provided by the Union County Sheriff's Office.

During the week of September 18-24th, the Union County Sheriff’s Office along with Safe Kids Union County and the Monroe, Wesley Chapel, and Hemby Bridge Fire Departments will be teaming up to actively participate in 2022’s Child Passenger Safety Week. This event encourages and highlights the need for our local parents and caregivers to make sure their car seats and booster seats are fitted properly for their children and are also installed properly. During this event, certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will be available at multiple permanent checking station sites spread across Union County to assist and educate our local residents. 

In addition to Child Passenger Safety Week, each permanent checking station listed below will host “Seat Check Saturday” on September 24th between the hours of 10 A.M. and 12 P.M. and certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will be on-site to assist our residents at no charge!

While Child Passenger Safety Week provides a key opportunity to encourage the safe installation and use of car seats and booster seats, these safety measures are critical throughout the year. The facts surrounding North Carolina child passenger safety are sobering:  

  • Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children aged one to 13 years old.
  • An average of 60,000 children aged zero to 15 years old were involved in motor vehicle crashes between 2016 and 2020 in North Carolina.
  • Among children under the age of 15 who were killed or seriously injured in passenger vehicle crashes, thirty-one percent were unrestrained (North Carolina data from 2016-2020).
