Is your child’s car seat installed properly?
Virtua's team of car seat technicians is spreading the word about car seat safety during National Child Passenger Safety Week (September 18-24). Virtua will offer two free car seat check events for infant up to booster size seats. Parents, expectant parents and grandparents can have their child seats checked for proper installation on:
Sunday, September 18
10 am to 1 pm
Katz Jewish Community Center
Cherry Hill, NJ
Saturday, September 24 (register online or call 1-888-VIRTUA-3)
10 am to 1 pm
Virtua Voorhees Hospital
Throughout the week, patients being discharged from the Mother Baby Units at Virtua Voorhees and Virtua Memorial will receive goody bags from the car seat team. There will also be opportunities to win "on the go" gift baskets filled with baby essentials, and parents can participate in a live Twitter chat with one of Virtua’s certified car seat technicians on Monday, September 19, 9 to10 am.
