Palm Coast – The City of Palm Coast proudly recognizes the third week of September as Child Passenger Safety Week, a national campaign dedicated to educating parents and caregivers on the importance of ensuring the safety of our youngest passengers during car journeys.

To commemorate this occasion, the Palm Coast Fire Department (PCFD) released an informative video showcasing key safety measures that you can watch here. Simultaneously, the City of Palm Coast will share valuable weekly tips and information on our social media platforms.

PCFD is home to dedicated Child Passenger Safety Technicians, ready to guide and educate residents on properly installing car seats to ensure the utmost safety for their precious cargo.

Residents can take advantage of this invaluable opportunity by visiting any Palm Coast fire station. These expert technicians will meticulously inspect your car seat’s installation and condition, ensuring it complies with the highest safety standards. We wholeheartedly encourage expecting parents to include a car seat inspection as part of their pre-baby preparations, guaranteeing their newborns a safe journey home.

“Our Palm Coast firefighters truly appreciate seeing kids safely secured in cars. Unfortunately, there are occasions when we must respond to car accidents with children in them. While we hope to avoid these situations altogether, it’s generally a far more positive outcome when the child is in a car seat or wearing a seat belt correctly,” said Palm Coast Fire Chief Kyle Berryhill. “We recognize the significance of child passenger safety, and our objective is to assist and inform our community, ensuring the safety of our youngest members while traveling on the roads. Child Passenger Safety Week offers us a valuable opportunity to share crucial information and offer practical assistance to parents and caregivers.”
