    Re: Facebook tip of the day

    Did you know... Unsecured items--like toys, books, cups, and cell phones--can become projectiles in a crash. Rule of thumb: If you wouldn't want it thrown at your child's head, don't leave it loose in your car!

    Re: Facebook tip of the day

    Did you know... A rear-facing restraint supports the entire head, neck, and back in a head-on collision. The restraint cradles and moves with the child, reducing stress to the neck and spinal cord.

    Re: Facebook tip of the day

    Did you know... Forward facing child restraints should be installed with the tether whenever possible. First secure the seat using either the seatbelt or the lower anchors; then attach and tighten the top tether.

    Did you know... Harness straps should always lie flat across the child and never be twisted, folded, or "scrunched".
