Citizens Memorial Hospital now offers complimentary car seat and booster seat education and hands-on assistance. Alicia Zacher, R.N., CMH emergency department assistant director and trauma program manager and Daniel Zacher, EMT, CMH pre-hospital services, are both certified safety technicians by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

“Understanding car seat safety should be a top priority for parents and caregivers,” says Alicia Zacher. “Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. CMH is dedicated to conducting child safety seat checks where we can teach hands-on assistance for proper use of child restraint systems and safety belts.”

Certified car seat technicians can assist with installing a car seat and booster seat correctly; provide education on NHTSA’s car seat recommendations based on a child’s age and size; and provide safety information as well as car seat inspections. CMH partners with Bolivar City Fire Department and Polk County Health Center on car seat safety. Walk-ins at all locations are welcome, but appointments are preferred. CMH will offer free car seat inspections at the hospital’s Baby Fair on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. until noon in the CMH Community Rooms, 1500 N. Oakland, Bolivar. No appointment is necessary at the event.

For more information or to make an appointment for a car seat inspection with CMH, call 417-328-6663.
