Safety program giving away free car seats

HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Parents will have the opportunity to receive a free car seat or have their own car seats installed at Eli Whitney Technical High School in Hamden Friday.

Buckle Up for Life, a national car safety program, is teaming up with Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital to teach parents and children about the proper use of car seats and seat belts, as well as give away car seats to families in need.

The program will host two safety sessions at the school, beginning at 1:15 p.m. and 2 p.m.

While waiting to see a car seat technician, students from the school’s automotive class will inspect all cars to make sure the tire pressure and fluids are at a safe level.

Participants must attend a 45-minute presentation to receive a car seat.

You can RSVP for a session by calling Theresa Miller at (203) 397-4031 at extension 3918.
