    Maryland launches Child Passenger Safety Week Twitter campaign
    Effort to instruct on correct car seat installation, use
    Baltimore, MD (September 11, 2015) – During Child Passenger Safety Week, September 13 – 19, 2015, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) will launch its “Car Seat Superhero” Twitter campaign. This campaign will encourage correct car seat installation and use, will recognize caregivers who attend car seat check-up events as “Car Seat Superheroes,” and will acknowledge Maryland Child Passenger Safety Technicians for the important work they do to protect children as they ride in motor vehicles.
    DHMH’s Maryland Kids in Safety Seats (MD KISS) program is coordinating the effort.
    “This campaign seeks to help save lives of Maryland’s children, by helping parents understand how to properly install and to secure children in car seats, booster seats and seatbelts,” said DHMH Secretary Van T. Mitchell.
    “Last year in Maryland, 81 percent of caregivers who attended a car seat checkup event arrived with at least one error which could reduce the safety of their child passenger,” says Dr. Howard Haft, Deputy Secretary for Public Health at DHMH. “When it comes to child safety, there’s no room for mistakes.”
    Caregivers can protect their child passengers and become one of Maryland’s “Car Seat Superheroes” by attending a car seat checkup event, posted at www.mdkiss.org. For more information, contact MD KISS at 800-370-SEAT, or email dhmh.kiss@maryland.gov.
