Educating Oregon Families about Child Safety Seats
AbstractChild safety seats are being used more frequently, but correct and consistent use is still a problem. Educating the community and medical professionals about the correct use of child safety seats helps with correct usage. Educational campaigns can be directed to parents, medical professionals, safety professionals (fire and police departments), hospitals, and schools. Television public service announcements, mailings, billboards, radio spots, and a web site have all been part of a successful child safety seat educational campaign in Oregon. Improving the public’s knowledge of the correct use of child safety seats will reduce the number of childhood injuries, and medical professionals can play a significant part in this educational campaign.
