Safe Kids Canada offers a free child passenger safety DVD for parents across Canada
Safe Kids Canada announces the release of a new bilingual DVD entitled Kids that Click -
Keep Your Kids Safe on Every Ride, tips for using car seats, booster seats, and seat belts safely. The new DVD is part of Kids that Click, a program that educates parents on how to choose and use car seats, booster seats, and seat belts safely, sponsored by the Hudson's Bay Company (Hbc).
The DVD provides clear instructions on how to install car and booster seats and is endorsed by the Canadian Paediatric Society. Along with visual checklists and medical testimonials, the DVD provides simple, step-by-step demonstrations of how to install car seats and booster seats and use the seat belt safely. Information in the DVD is suitable for all families across Canada.
"We know that many parents worry that they are not installing their child's car seat or booster seat correctly," says Allyson Hewitt, executive director of Safe Kids Canada. "This DVD gives parents the important information they need to keep their child safe in the car and they can watch it in the comfort of their own home."
The release of the DVD is in conjunction with the first United Nations Global Road Safety Week. It is expected that hundreds of initiatives will take place worldwide, and will be lead by governments, nongovernmental organizations, the United Nations, private sector companies, and others working to make roads safer.
Parents can get free a copy of this DVD by calling Safe Kids Canada toll-free at 1-888-SAFE-TIPS (723-3847) or by visiting safekidscanada.ca. The DVD will also be streamed on the Safe Kids Canada Web site later this spring.
