The Childsaver Car Seat Program at the Safety Council of Palm Beach County, Inc. has worked very hard through the years to reverse this sad, but true epidemic. The way we help families in Palm Beach County is to educate and offer child safety seats (when available), at a reduced price for those in need.
Remember, always buckle children in the back seat, especially if you have a passenger side airbag. Never put a rear facing child safety seat in front of an airbag, unless you have a turn off switch and the switch is in the “off” position. Read your owner’s manual and follow the weight and height restrictions. Make sure your child and child safety seat meets the American Academy of Pediatrics guideline of rear-facing up to 1 year and 20 pounds. If your child’s safety seat does not move an inch to the left or right when pulling on the base, and if all other directions were followed correctly, you might have a proper installation. For further information check with your owner’s manual in your vehicle, or call the Safety Council of Palm Beach County, Inc.
Car Seats are available for families in need on Friday’s by appointment only. Call 561-845-8233 to schedule an appointment with one of our child passenger safety technicians. For additional locations please click here.
