FIRE DEPARTMENT PROVIDES CHILD PASSENGER SAFETY PROGRAM
The Laurinburg Fire Department is committed to reducing the occurrence and severity of childhood injuries and death from motor vehicle related incidents. To address this, the department hosts a Child Passenger Safety Program which provides resources and outreach to parents and caregivers to help educate them on proper transportation and restraints for children, as well as to assist with the task of ensuring child restraints are used and installed properly.
The department has eight (8) employees who are certified as nationally recognized Child Passenger Safety Technicians, and who have received specialty training and have experience with the proper installation of these restraints.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of unintentional deaths in children. Providing a properly selected, installed and used child restraint is the best way to ensure that your children do not add to this statistic.
The City of Laurinburg Fire Department offers, by appointment only, a CPS Check, at both of the Laurinburg Fire Stations, located at 501 North Main Street and 1547 Hickory Street. Parents and caregivers are welcome to call or stop by and ask questions and receive technical assistance from our trained technicians.
The Laurinburg Fire Department is also a proud member of N.C. Safe Kids Mid-Carolinas Region, participating in county-wide efforts to avoid childhood injuries.
For more information on the CPS program contact the Laurinburg Fire Department at 910-276-1811 or on the web at www.safekids.org.
