VARS Checks Child Car Seats

    Vergennes Area Rescue Squad is proud to announce participation in the statewide Car Seat Fitting Station Program.  The trained squad members join Fitting Stations in 21 locations across the state that teach parents and caregivers to install and adjust their car seats properly and to determine when an older child is ready to graduate from a booster seat to an adult safety belt.
    Motor vehicle crashes are the leading killer of children ages 3-14. “Child passenger safety is not just about babies and toddlers. It's a commitment that lasts a lifetime,” says Chuck Welch, a certified car seat technician.  4 out of 5 seats are used incorrectly according to Welch who is also an EMT-I with the rescue squad.  “Having the seats checked by a certified car seat technician can make a difference in a child's life,” says Welch, “It is just that important.”
