Car Seat Event Big Success!

The Healthy Baby Coalition of Parmer County, Parmer Medical Center and the Texas Department of Health and Human Services teamed together on October 22nd to make Parmer County a safer place for children. A free car seat inspection was offer in the hospital’s employee parking lot.   

Certified technicians worked with each family to instruct them on how to assure their child was fitted properly in their car seat and that the car seat was installed properly in the vehicle. Each family received 20-30 minutes of one-on-one instruction from the technicians who answered questions and assured that each child was safe in their family vehicle.

In addition, DSHS provided 20 car seats that were distributed free to parents who did not have a seat for their child or whose current car seat was considered unsafe or not appropriate for the age of the child.  Overall, 29 children were assisted. 

We sincerely apologize to the families we had to turn away due to running out of seats and/or time. Parmer Medical Center is sending one of their staff for the required training to become an inspector.  We will then be able to hold these events more frequently.   The next event will be scheduled in the spring.
